“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.”

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.

Anyone might excusably have fallen in love with Narcissus, even as a child, and when he blossomed into a man, his path was strewn with heartlessly rejected lovers of both sexes; for he had a stubborn pride in his own beauty.

A short film Narcissus & Echo Based on this original stage version was later made in collaboration with film director Christopher Watson.
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.
Alasdair Sheard, Darren Hunsley, Debbie Bentley, Linda Taylor, Matt Fotterall, Peter Bramley, Steve Penny
“Vicious is an hilariously funny and well observed piece of work by a talented company who give strong, comic and sometimes very moving performances”
“Well acted comedy. You actually feel part of it”
“Written and directed by Peter Bramley, Vicious is performed with panache. A wickedly funny observation of the hedonistic world of homosexuality"
Written and Directed by Peter Bramley

"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."
