Get Aladdin

Get Aladdin
When street-thief Aladdin and his widowed (single but experienced) mum stumble on a dangerous magic lamp, they find themselves pursued by the evil Abanazer and a hapless Scotland Yard detective on secondment from G4S. they flee their Chinese laundry in Clapham, and stow away to the ancient, badly-researched Chinese province of Hao Hung, where they are joined in a battle of love and wits by the emperor, his gay hot-geek son, and a lascivious genie (You've got to rub her the right way.) Filthier than a late night takeaway, sweeter than satay sauce, Get Aladdin is a magical magical festive show with all the trimmings and a generous helping of MSG.

Hard Rain

Hard Rain
A play about what happens when you push things underground, set in New York 1969 in the sweltering few days before the eruption of the Stonewall riots. Kicked out of the military after a year in Vietnam, Ruby rocks up in Greenwich Village in high heels and a rage, and meets the street kid who will change his world. Jon Bradfield and Martin Hooper's vibrant drama unfolds in a mafia-run bar greased with smart-talking queers, bribe-happy cops and nervous Wall Street high-flyers.

Tinderella: Cinders Slips It In

Tinderella: Cinders Slips It In
Once upon a time, a slave boy called Cinders lived with his murderous stepmother and her daughters in a little landlocked kingdom. Now although this kingdom lacked democracy and had been banned from Eurovision on behavioural grounds, it boasted a prince whose balls were the envy of the world. Indeed, there was no happier sight in all the kingdom than the prince's balls in full swing. The Prince took great pleasure and care in arranging his balls, which he liked to hold in all the fine rooms of the castle. And Cinders really fancied the Prince. But they would never meet. . . would they?
