Earthquakes in London

2nd June - 4th June

Tickets for this event are available from the Tron Theatre - 0141 552 4267

“You feel it, we all do. We know there’s nothing to be done, so we’re dancing and drinking as fast as we can…”

Mike Bartlett’s (Doctor Foster, King Charles III, The Town, 13) rampaging panorama of the UK in the twenty first century has at its epicentre the unsettled lives of three sisters: one a politician, another heavily pregnant and the other a rebellious teenager. They share an absent scientist father who has predicted the environmental annihilation of humanity.

All four struggle to find their truths against a shifting backdrop of strip joints, business meetings, rural Scotland, uncomfortable truths and swimming in Hampstead Heath. A chaotic odyssey of contemporary excess, where people and belief systems are in relentless movement and transformation. Like all great plays it is both human and political and charges us to respond to our time.

We’ve all forgotten things; we’ve all had thoughts that have left our minds as quickly as they have entered, or those words you have said hundreds of times that one day, momentarily, have escaped you. Imagine if these things happened to you every minute of every day. Imagine, that while these things were happening, you began to lose your ability to recognise people you loved- and imagine, while all this was happening, you began to lose your sense of time; hours turned to days and days turned to hours. How would you and your family cope? We meet one couple who are pushed to the brink.


She always had wonderful poise and grace and
dignity.
She had the most eloquent way of saying things.
She loved to read. Loved to read. It’s how she relaxed. How she-

shut herself off from the world.

A rags to riches story about fame and fortune in the high society of eighteenth-century London. This devised production by a new all-female theatre company uses stylised storytelling to explore the rise and fall of Mariah and Elizabeth Gunning.

The whole world is still mad about the Gunning sisters.
Mariah and Elizabeth Gunning came to London from humble beginnings in Ireland, and quickly rose to fame, making their debut dressed as Lady Macbeth and Juliet.
Adored by the gentry, worshipped by the masses, and vilified by the press, the Gunning sisters were the stars of eighteenth-century London. Though largely forgotten today, their story encapsulates our modern obsession with celebrity and images of perfection.
This all-female devised production re-imagines the lives behind the fairy tale, using stylised storytelling to explore the rise and fall of these two famous women.

Greg Mackey, an eccentric American actor/director/innovator has received £250,000 from Creation Scotchland to produce his avant-garde reinterpretation of Chekhov’s The Seagull. But when his funding is cut and his entire team bails, Greg is forced to use three bewildered amateurs to bring his absurd dream to life. The performance begins with a documentary that goes behind-the-scenes of Greg’s outrageous rehearsal process, and culminates with a 25-minute live performance of Chekhov's re-mastered classic. In Greg’s words, “It’s my job to completely revolutionize the Theater—I’m up to the task, trust me.”

An intimate exploration of women, time and the criminal justice system. The story of two women transitioning through the unknown. The story of a world that works against us. A world that eats us up and spits us out on the other side. A performance about how the stories we tell make us the women we are.
Inspired by the company's ongoing work with women in the criminal justice system, this show aims to viscerally challenge our perception of the female criminal.

Sara wakes up in a dark room. She doesn’t know where she is, who she is, or what’s happened. Apparently, she’s been in an accident. Apparently, they are there to help.
Slowly, she begins to remember. But the strange stories that fall from her mouth don’t quite make sense. Are they fact or fiction? Dreams or reality? Truth or lies? And, more importantly, has she really forgotten anything at all?
This intimate play explores human morality in the age of the internet, when a murder might not be a crime, and the dangerous balance between love, freedom, and binary coding.

Ever wondered what actually happens to your mind and body when you grow old? Did you know that feeling lonely affects your mind and body in more ways that you might expect? Having interviewed some of Glasgow’s elderly, we’ve taken their thoughts on these subjects and compared them to our own, and asked ourselves – Is there actually a difference between young and old? Combining music, movement and verbatim text, we experiment with new ways to tell these stories.

The Circle of Fifths

2nd June - 4th June

Tickets for this event are available from the Tron Theatre - 0141 552 4267

Based on the book by Szymon Bogacz
Polish Text Adapted by Aleksandra Poplawska
English Translation by Agnieszka Lenton

It’s snowing heavily and the roads are closed. The gymnasium of the village school has become the shelter and sleeping quarters for the tired, stranded travellers - displaced and dispossessed for the night and relying on the hospitality of the locals.

Between the twilight and the dawn, the travellers, all with their own stories to tell, are forced to confront each other and themselves. The headmaster, the ghost of a lorry driver, the woman with a missing husband and even Father Christmas himself, meet, part and meet again throughout the night, and as the magic hour of the dawn arrives, the snow is still falling.

The Circle of Fifths is a dreamy, discordant and haunting adaptation of the polish novella by Szymon Bogacz.

Born sixty seconds apart, Identical twin brothers David and Sam are carbon copies of each other. Why then, almost thirty years on do they feel so different? As Sam becomes engulfed by his depression, he finds himself drawing comparisons between his own life and his brother’s. And each day seems to bring something else to ruin Sam’s hopes of ever becoming a father. There was a time when they understood everything about each other, but that bond may now have disappeared. Brother is an exploration of masculinity, mental health, and what it means to be a twin.

Every day, thousands of soldiers answer the call of duty and charge head-first into battle. But what happens to those they leave behind, and how do these men and women cope with the invisible wounds of war?

Everyone has a story to tell, but sometimes it seems that no one will listen. When you've put your life on the line and faced death head on, it's not easy to come back home and uncover your invisible wounds. Behind the Front Lines: Warriors and Wives tells the true stories of US Military personnel and their spouses, tackling the stigmas, exposing the struggles, and celebrating the successes that come with the territory of being a military family, before and after their time on the front lines.
