Anthology

 

Ranging from a re-imagined Medea to Agatha Christie's neglected passion piece to devised work about the disenfranchised poor (of Shakespeare's Verona), the work bursts with big thinking and creativity.  Yet each production starts small by digging deeply into the text to create a visceral connection between playwright and audience.
