The village drama group has lost all their men. The future looks bleak until a bright, young director, Francesca Delmarco, agrees to help them out.

She persuades them to enter the 'Dame Agnes Wragg Festival of One Act Plays for an All Female Cast' with a play she has written herself. Francesca's play is controversial; it concerns a lesbian couple who want to have a baby. When the word gets out, the vicar's wift, Agatha Frost, attempts to ban the production.

Author: Alice Jackman,Holly Osmond-Smith
Co-Directors: Alice Jackman,Holly Osmond-Smith
Location: RS3 (Roborough Studios, Prince of Wales Road)

There once was a beautiful girl who was known to swipe left all day, until she found a charming Prince who was only a mile away. The Prince was none too picky but this one was out of his league. He'd never seen a Maiden so fair, plus he hadn't had sex in a week.

Tinderella is a modern day adaption of the classic fairytale 'Cinderella'. Forget courtmanship and a glass slipper, this hilarious parody will transport you to a land not so far away. Accompany Tinderella on her quest to find her Prince Charming via the well-known app that we know and love: Tinder!​

Workshop: Rhum and Clay

Location: TS1 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

In this three hour workshop Rhum and Clay will explore how to create theatre that is cinematic: taking the visual trickery of cinema and putting it on stage. The beginning of the workshop focuses on how to tell stories through mime and gesture, creating the illusion of many different characters and spaces just through the use of the body and voice. For example, how can we as an ensemble create the illusion of a camera zooming in to a characters face or drawing attention to a specific moment of action. We will then further explore different aspects of the visual language, for example how does a Tarantino movie move as a pose to a Fellini. The workshop culminates in the students creating a five minute adaptation of a film, which is presented to the rest of the group.

Wasted

Author: Kate Tempest
Co-Directors: Rachael Leeson,Beth Cowley
Location: TS3 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

'Every atom in us screams at us to let our hearts out. But it's easier to pass out than to fall asleep peacefully.'

Ted, Charlotte and Danny are stuck. Stuck in jobs. Stuck in habits. Stuck in feeling that their lives are being wasted. So what if today was the day? The day to change.

'Wasted' is spoken word artist Kate Tempest's first play, which received two sell-out runs at the Roundhouse in London. Wonderfully funny and poignantly challenging, the play questions love, life and loss through its relatable characters and Tempest's captivating poetry.

Three Women

Author: Sylvia Plath
Co-Directors: Joe Miller,Emily Johnson
Location: RS1 (Roborough Studios, Prince of Wales Road)

"I thought I could deny the consequence--
But it was too late for that. It was too late, and the face
Went on shaping itself with love, as if I was ready."

Originally a radio play, Sylvia Plath recounts three differing experiences of pregnancy in a series of monologues. In the backdrop of the 1960s, the play flickers between the everyday worries of a healthy mother, the dark emptiness of a secretary suffering multiple miscarriages and a young college student not ready for the enormity of pregnancy. Not only exploring the troubles of motherhood and the female perspective, Three Women shines a light on the depth of love, strength and the human condition by hearing the struggles first hand.

T3 Festival
Agamemnon's Wake

Director: Isabelle Fitzgerald
Location: TS3 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)

'Friends and family. I want to thank you all for coming, and celebrating the life of my dearest husband, Agamemnon. I beg you to drink, and be merry, for he would not want us to sit about and be glum. We all know that my husband enjoyed more than a dram or two of whiskey, and if he was here today, we know he'd be making the most of an excuse to drink. So I guess, cheers, to all of you.'

 

Come and join us for a dark, energetic, dynamic piece about love, betrayal and death!
