Greyhounds

Time & Again Theatre Company: Greyhounds

The year is 1941 and rehearsals for Henry V are underway…

Greyhounds entwines Shakespeare's famous story of warlike Harry with the everyday trials and tribulations of small village life during the Second World War. Set in their local village hall, whilst the war rages above them the residents of Shuttlefield struggle to stage a production of Henry V to raise money for their local Spitfire fund. You’ll find them rehearsing, gossiping and indulging in some seriously bad acting as the night of the performance draws ever closer.
This piece of new writing was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival 2018, and combines Shakespeare, with a touch of comedy and some truly vintage flair.

Essex Girl

Maria Ferguson: Essex Girl

Kirsty is a sixteen-year-old girl growing up in 00s Brentwood. She likes WKD, Elton John, Pie and Mash and Charlie Red body spray. She's on a quest to win Sexy Ricky's heart and pass her GCSEs. She also has a secret to tell you. One she can't tell anyone else. Follow Kirsty's story through the house parties and Irish pubs of Essex. From West Ham matches to choir practice, pre-drinks to registration, she will tell you what it's really like to be an Essex Girl. Essex Girl is the second show from award-winning theatre maker and real-life Essex Girl, Maria Ferguson (Fat Girls Don’t Dance). This show is a monologue about growing up surrounded by expectation, of inappropriate relationships, female friendship, secrets, desires and alcopops. It questions how the Essex Girl stereotype influences young girls, what they want, what they think they deserve, and how they are treated. Wonderfully funny and ultimately hard-hitting it will resonate with a wide audience, particularly millenials, or anyone who has got too drunk at a house party.
