Forge R&D

In 2014 the 100kg iron 'welcome' gate was stolen from Dachau concentration camp. A local blacksmith made a replica. It was exactly like the original.

FORGE is the first of a new set of work about memorials, replicas, and human behaviour at spaces with difficult histories. It will ask what and who memorials are for, what should happen to places where traumatic events have taken place and who decides. It will ask about decay, hallowing, closure and our responsibility to the present.

SUPPORT
We’ve just got some R&D support from the Arts Council, and I’m being supported by Cambridge Junction, Metal Culture- Peterborough, MGC Futures, with additional time at Royal Exchange, Manchester and The Showroom,Chichester University.

The Waiting Room

“If you’d like to follow me and keep any questions until the end, then we’ll begin…”

Do you know where you’re going? What you’re doing next? What’s your five-year plan?

As the summertime tourists begin to flock, the fresh-faced, polo shirt-sporting employees of Bath’s beleaguered Adventure Tours™ have it all in front of them. Which might just be the problem.

But how can you even begin to figure your life out when you have Romans, Royals and Ross from Friends to contend with? Throw in a heady Jane Austen romance, a bottle of tequila and the threat of redundancy and everything’s getting very complicated…

Founded under the eaves of the egg and the latest company to emerge from our Theatre School programme for adults, Fourth Floor Theatre company proudly presents their debut; a comic and heartfelt exploration of friendships, connection and what comes next.

Arabian Nights

Is this the time for stories?

This is the perfect time for stories. Stories show us how to overcome, to triumph. Even over death.

From Aladdin to Sinbad, genies and fl ying carpets, you all know the magical stories of the Arabian Nights. But what do you know of the storyteller, the quest for survival, and the vital magic woven by these fantastical yarns? Scheherazade must rely on her wits, skills, and creative flair to build a wondrous world in order to save her life. These tales are full of wishes made real, terror and joy, and magical transformations… but can they change a woman’s fate?

This summer join us as we soar high above the dangerous clamour of the world around us, immersing ourselves in fantastical landscapes where anything is possible. Now in its fourth year, the Theatre School Summer Company presents an urgent and extraordinary look at the power of story and the redemptive powers of empathy.

Holocaust Brunch

We invite you to hear from a pair of Holocaust survivors and one of their descendants, over a delicious brunch. There will be the opportunity to reflect on their stories and on how, as the next generations, we can keep the memory alive. Or, which memories to keep alive. And whose memories. Hang on, why are we doing this? And where’s all the food?

How can we honour the histories we inherit whilst breaking free from them? Can the weight of inheritance be turned into a gift?

‘Holocaust Brunch’ uses comedy and beigels to explore whether we can heal from ancestral trauma. Bringing to life the true stories of two Holocaust survivors connected to Tamara, this solo show tears open an intergenerational wound, probing why we remember the Holocaust – and what it might look like to forget.

This Island's Mine

“Eyes smarting, Heart aching, From the pangs of first love”

  • Writer Philip Osment | Director Philip Wilson | Artwork by Curtis Holder

  • 1988. THATCHER’S BRITAIN.

  • Seventeen-year-old Luke runs away to London – away from homophobic playground slurs, headlines that scream ‘Don’t Teach Our Children To Be Gay’ and a family who wouldn’t understand him – to Uncle Martin, who he once saw with his arms around another man at a march. In the capital, Mark is sacked because of fears about colleagues working with ‘someone like him’. His boyfriend, Selwyn, faces being beaten up both by the police and at home by his own stepbrother. Meanwhile, Debbie battles with her son, who doesn’t want to live with her and her girlfriend. And retired piano teacher Miss Rosenblum – who once found refuge in this country from a terror that swept away half her family in 1930s Vienna – has seen this sort of hatred and fear before.

  • Soon, these individual stories – of first loves and old flames, alliances and abandonment, missed opportunities and new chances – intertwine to paint a vivid picture of Eighties Britain.

      • s Island’s Mine was originally performed by Gay Sweatshop in 1988. Now, three decades after the introduction of Section 28 banning positive representations of homosexuality, Philip Osment’s passionate and lyrical play, of outsiders, exiles and refugees, is all too resonant.

At Wootton Bassett School the supply teacher has done a runner and locked
the pupils in their classroom. Outside, only yards from their confi nement, a
repatriation of fallen British soldiers is happening along the high street, as it has
over a hundred times before through this quiet Wiltshire town. But this one is
more personal than most.
As factions form and secrets are revealed, truths are revealed. An exhilarating and
startling snapshot of a generation who have inherited a world at war.

THE CHANGING ROOM

Directed by Steph Kempson
We are existing on the cusp of growing up.
Are we teenagers? Are we children? What are we? Bodies in fl ux and perspectives
shifting; knowing change is coming but not what that change will look like.
Set in and around a swimming pool, The Changing Room follows a group of teens
full of excitement, impatience and uncertainty, each with their own secret worries and
desires for what comes next.

I am all in a sea of wonders. I doubt; I fear; I think strange things which I dare not confess to my own soul” Bram Stoker

Darkness descends over the wind-whipped headlands of Whitby, the silence scorched as a coal-black shadow tears through the sky. A howl echoes around the town’s twisting collection of castles, convents and caves.

Dracula. Dracula has come.

This winter, Bath Theatre Academy’s final year students present a retelling of Bram Stoker’s peerless Gothic masterpiece, told at a crossroads of human evolution. To whom – or what – do we turn when the Old Ways no longer light the path? How do you fight something you can’t see? And what if the thing you fear most grows, lives and pulses through your very veins?

The Daughter in Law

★★★★ “Arguably the best account of working-class life in British drama. Jack Gamble’s revival, strongly cast and steeped in authentic east Midlands dialect, does it full justice … A first-rate revival of a major play.” — The Guardian

Following a sold-out first run, and three Off West End award nominations, The Daughter-in-Law transfers to Arcola Studio 1 for four weeks only.

D H Lawrence’s groundbreaking play, never performed in his lifetime, entwines the struggles of a young married couple with those of a community on strike.

In Nottinghamshire, 1912, trouble is brewing in the mines – and simmering closer to home. When Mrs Gascoyne discovers an explosive secret about her newly-married son, it risks the hard-earned security of her daughter-in-law. But Minnie Gascoyne isn’t going to settle without a fight.

Jack Gamble’s in-the-round staging tears down the walls of the Gascoyne family home, and exposes Lawrence’s remarkable characters to a world approaching boiling point.

The sound of the drums and war-cries are getting closer. She will have revenge. She will make Rome quake in fear.

61 CE, Britannia. On the furthest outreaches of the Roman Empire – at the very edge of the known world – rebellion is brewing.

Then let them bleed. Let them
Full drain me of my blood till nought is left
And I am like a rock, my heart hard flint
From which will spring a vengeful spark so great
That all the Roman Empire may burn.

Boudica is a brand-new ancient-history play, which tells the story of one of Britain’s most iconic women: a queen, a warrior and a rebel – as she battles to reclaim what is hers. But is a gold chain still naught but a chain?

Premiering at Shakespeare’s Globe, London, in 2017, the Theatre Royal Bath Theatre School promises to deliver an epic spectacular in the intimate setting of the egg theatre, this November

Square Rounds

Square Rounds

The first UK production in nearly 30 years.

“You were very naïve if you could ever believe
that warfare would stop with your gun
for chemist/engineer a brand new era
of invention in war’s just begun.”

In a new production commissioned by the Finborough Theatre, the rediscovery of Tony Harrison’s Square Rounds in its first UK production for nearly 30 years plays at the Finborough Theatre for a four week limited season.. 

Fritz Haber, a German Jewish chemist, has been ordered by the Kaiser to develop a deadly poison gas to help Germany win the First World War. Despite the protestations of his wife, Haber hopes that his new invention will be an opportunity to escape his status as an outsider in German society. Little does he know, however, that his invention will go on to be used to exterminate his own people in the Holocaust just 25 years later.


American inventor Hudson Maxim is concerned for his country and the frightening technological advances employed by America’s new European enemies. But he is also jealous of his brother Hiram – internationally famous for his invention of the machine gun – and deeply suspicious of his brother’s cosy relationship with the European powers. 


Based on true events and featuring an all-female cast, Square Rounds explores the devastating effects of technology, the personal demons of the inventors, and the escalating tensions between nations in the build up to war. Presented in the year that marks the centenary of the end of the First World War, this play about war and the devastating impact of chemical warfare and weapons of mass destruction has never been more timely.

Who is responsible? And what’s the cure?

★★★★ “What a story … Camus made contemporary” – Evening Standard
★★★★ – Guardian, Telegraph, Independent, The Times, Sunday Times, WhatsOnStage

Following last year’s sold-out premiere, director Neil Bartlett revives his critically-acclaimed production of The Plague for four weeks only.

The Plague is Albert Camus’ electrifying story about living through a time of crisis and fighting back against despair.

Originally written in the aftermath of the Nazis’ march across Europe, the novel struck a powerful chord with millions struggling to understand the fascist ‘plague’ that had just overwhelmed them.

Now, as Europe slides again into chaos and uncertainty, this gripping stage adaptation retells Camus’ classic for our own dangerous times.

This year, Alan Norman is chosen and accompanied by a surprisingly intelligent dog; he sets out on a journey through 1930’s pre-war Europe. 

A nationalist threat however is on the rise and when Alan returns home to Pressan Ambo, he finds it a very different place to how he left it.

Part madcap adventure, part piercing social satire, Auden and Isherwood’s vivid depiction of a world on the brink of collapse has never seemed so timely.

Busu is a classic farce and The Damask Drum, a tragic ghost story, both adapted by Yukio Mishima. Busu Theatre and StoneCrabs join forces to create an irreverent, playful take on the traditional Kyogen and Noh plays, presented with a contemporary twist incorporating Japanese folkloric music.
