Huzzies

Synopsis:
In this compelling piece of new writing, Huzzies tells the story of the making of a band who crave distraction from the humdrum of everyday life and yearn for something better. Meet Dee, fighting to escape from the shadow of her dysfunctional family and Pete, who thinks being in a band is a great way to meet girls. Or Shona, messing around until a better offer comes along while Claire, ever the good girl, just wants to fit in. Fast-paced, direct and full of Stacey Gregg's trademark wit, Huzzies follows the highs and lows of a band desperate for fame as they hurl themselves at Belfast's music scene. each other's best friends and their own worst enemies, the band stumbles from dodgy cover versions to true inspiration, with lots of laugh out loud moments. But just as the success Dee craves seems within their grasp, she is forced to make a terrible choice that threatens all their futures.

Perve

Perve
an irreverent and unsettling play that interrogates paranoia, ambiguity and innocence in our highly sexualised world. Gethin has just finished his film course and reckons he's the next Scorsese. His mum is on at him to do her friend's wedding video - before the couple get divorced! But Gethin is interested in a much more daring project - one that will get him into dangerously deep water, question his idealism and turn his life and that of his family upside down.

I'm a grafter. I'm decent. I deserve it. Development. Hotels, spas, Nandos, boutiques. Belfast is changing but for some people progress means new barriers. A group of construction workers are building an extension to the Peace-wall to separate Them-ens from Us-ens. When Polish worker Yuri's daughter starts having serious problems with her boyfriend, they rally around in support. Will their good intentions go too far?
