A short look into a life that could've gone a bit better. Brian Poller looks at life just a little bit differently; using incompetence to gain success – or at least one version of success. This one man show has been more than 50 years in the making: a soaring saga of disaster and comedy; inanity and depth.

Equal parts historical and hysterical, explore the history of gin through story and song, as we drunkenly stumble through tales of love and women, gin and secrets. “Not only vocally sublime but a stroke of comedy genius” (TheatrePress), Mother’s Ruin takes a journey through 18th Century London, a few New York speakeasies, the Australian bush and the jungles of Peru, via sailors and barmaids, bootleggers and master distillers.
Mother’s Ruin features music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Merle Haggard, Martha Wainwright, Billy Joel, The Popes, The Pretenders and more.

Avid ‘Thrones’ fan Graeme just wants to recreate his favourite fantasy saga on stage - aided and abetted by his best friend Paul and the girl he used to fancy at school - Bryony. He doesn’t quite have the same budget as the TV show, or as many cast members, or the performance skill required, but he’s sure George RR Martin would approve – and that’s what matters. But when news reaches them that an influential theatrical producer is in the building, Graeme decides that this could be his big break - as long as nothing goes wrong

Grab your mates, request a crap song and hit the dance floor for the dumbest night of Funtavia! Tomás Ford is proudly the worst DJ in the world, returning with his idiotic super-club for non-stop parties.

It's the tribute show you never knew you needed: Alanis Morrisette’s 90s classic, Jagged Little Pill, performed in its entirety for your nostalgic pleasure. Join us for an evening of angsty shouty singalong, musical reinventions, one or two earnest covers and a whole lot of ironic ( (not actually ironic) goodness.
It’s crap but it’s brilliant
It’s great but it’s really not
It’s old but it’s golden, yeah!
