Little Deaths

Synopsis:
"This is suburban S&M taken to painful extremes - but, far from being some gothic melodrama of predator and prey, it's a softly realistic (and thus more shocking) account of the powerful struggles, compromises, epiphanies and loneliness of life on the other side of love." - Venue magazine

Showing The Monster

Synopsis:
It's 1968 and British theatre censorship is over. So anything goes - right? When a famous actor gets cold feet about a gay kiss in a new play, the producer and director just want to keep him happy. But his co-star threatens to quit if the kiss is cut. Once the gloves are off, it's easy to shock but hard to be honest - on stage and in the real world.
