Current Projects

IMAG0528We’ve got three shows which we’ll be premièring in 2015:


Our biggest show to date, Regeneration follows three characters at various points from the 19th century to the near future (stopping off in Canada, Berlin, New York, Leeds and Shoreditch along the way) as we explore regeneration, gentrification and what makes a place ‘home’. It also involves words previously spoken by Boris Johnson, a fairytale, a riot and a lot of Lego.

Regeneration is supported by Rich Mix and will première in May 2015. You can read more about it here.

When Charlie Met Joan

Over the course of several months Charlie Whitworth has been meeting his MP Joan Ruddock. The result of this, When Charlie Met Joan, explores both the career of a woman who has sat in Parliament since 1987 and the possibility of political engagement when no one seems to be listening.

When Charlie Met Joan was developed with support from the Bike Shed Theatre will première in Summer 2015.
