The little girl that Santa forgot. How would you feel getting a set of spanners for Christmas, when what you really longed for was a Prom Queen Barbie? Follow Clara's journey as she battles with giant flies, judges Russian gymnastics and Sumo wrestles with balloon people. Crackers is a ballet without any dance. It is a Christmas hamper stuffed with more than just Eat-me dates and Spam.

Vicious

Written and Directed by Peter Bramley

Presented by Room B

Etcetera Theatre

Camden 4 - 23 February 1997

 

 

Troy Peron (real name Graham Bundley) is a bitchy drag queen way past her prime who shamelessly plots her way from Lewisham to Hollywood, cleanly slicing egos as she goes and hurting people for fun. A sharp comedy dealing with contemporary gay culture and someone who lives camp and trash like some blind religion.

 

Cast:

Alasdair Sheard, Darren Hunsley, Debbie Bentley, Linda Taylor, Matt Fotterall, Peter Bramley, Steve Penny

Bent

Bent

by Martin Sherman

Directed by Ann Cunningham

Presented by Room B.

26th-31st August, Quaker Meeting House

Edinburgh Fringe Festival 1996

 

In Nazi Germany there was only one thing worse than being a Jew.

Life in 30’s Berlin wasn’t always a cabaret. Especially if you were gay. But there always comes a time when you have to stand up and be counted. Gay or straight, if you have a heart, you will find Bent a deeply moving and profoundly uplifting experience. See it.

 

Cast:

Matthew Cottrell - Max

Peter Bramley - Horst

Steve Penney - Rudy

Claire Cogan - German Officers

George Croft - Greta

Simon Imrie - Wolf

 "The play, which, believe it or not, is full of humour, shows that even under the most brutal regimes the human spirit cannot be completely broken. Beautifully acted in a simple but effective production, it has great sympathy with the characters as they keep a grasp of love and dignity against all odds."

 “Box Theatre Company’s physical theatre production uses mask and dance in a performance which is sometimes funny, particularly the account of Dionysus’s birth…an energetic production.”

“Physical theatre is a suitable form in which to rework Euripides’ The Bacchae and Box Theatre Company has taken to its task with great vigour and a deal of inventiveness.”
