BASSETT
by James Graham
Directed by Jenny Davies
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
by Chris Bush
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.
