Random Acts By Leah Chillery Directed by Steven Luckie “Bet you’re glad you’re moving in now, with a stripper and an agoraphobe to call your flatmates.” Set in a grubby council flat on Hyson Green the story centres around Hugh and Charlotte, an unlikely couple living in sin. The zany pair are completely unaware that their cosy lives are about to change when the mysterious Faith arrives. A Background Noise By Laura Lomas Directed by Giles Croft "My starting point was an article I read in the paper about a group of boys who had attacked a young Muslim at a bus stop. I wanted to explore the lives and relationships of these boys to see what would drive them to commit such acts of violence. Yet I found that the more I wrote the more the play seemed to be about the relationship between the boys rather than the attack. The boys struggle with the complexities of grief and loss but in a way that is natural to them and is as honest as can be." Please note: You need a Day Pass to attend all the events on the first day.
