6th-9th July 2022

Five very different women sign up for pole dancing classes at the local village hall - each of them with their own reasons for taking up pole dancing. When one of the women receives devastating news, the others soon pull together and decide to turn their new skill into a fund raising event. As each of the women’s stories unfolds, they share laughter and tears in this hilarious, sad and ultimately moving play, a call to all women, celebrating strength through adversity.

5-8 October 2022
Reclusive siblings Peppy and Daniel live in a house stuffed full of everything they have ever owned. Their eccentric appearance and reclusive lifestyle means they are not like others on their road. When young neighbour Ben from next door comes visiting, looking for friendship, what happens next challenges everyone's idea of tolerance. A tender, dark and funny look at co-dependency, anxiety, and living alongside those who are different from us.
