Bane 1 and Bane 2
One man, 79 characters, with avirtuoso live guitar soundtrack. Hired hand Bruce Bane works the mean streets of pulp fiction. As he goes about his shadowy business down back alleys and eerie sidewalks, he shoots from the hip and asks questions later. Inspired by hard-boiled detective stories, classic film noir and mainstream cinema, Bane and Bane 2 are hilarious one-man genre parodies. Bane 2 picked up a Fringe Guru Editors Choice award at Edinburgh Festival and has just been nominated for the London Festival Fringe Best Play award!
Wretched Bliss is a little comic opera about a corrosive relationship. Presented as two honest and brutal snapshots, Stephen Crowe's sixth opera dispenses with the trappings of tradition; there are no victims and no villains- just life as we’ve all lived it.
Seething with musical audacity, Wretched Bliss fuses ragged compositional methods with graphic scores and free improvisation into a powerfully dramatic unity. Scored for soprano, baritone, alto sax, trumpet, viola and cello.
OutHouse Collective present ‘Proper Night’
A group of young people meet. They’re up for it but out of their comfort zone. They don’t know each other yet but that’s ok. They just want a proper night. Dancing. Partying. Getting wrecked. Taking risks. Everyone’s invited. With surrealism, gallows humour and real life situations interpretedonto the stage, ‘Proper Night’ is a play devised by the young group OutHouse Collective in collaboration with Director Dominic McHale.
