RUPTURED DUCK – THE AUDIO PLAY

All Fiona has ever dreamed of is to be on stage. When she is performing she becomes alive. There’s just one problem…she has stills disease which has forced her to live her life in a wheelchair.

Inspired by the experiences of artist Sophie Weaver and featuring a cast of both disabled and no-disabled performers about following your dreams and overcoming obstacles.

Part of the Ruptured Duck Theatre Project which explored disability and accessibility in the arts.

Written and Directed by award-winning Playwright Alfie James and featuring art work by Jacob Anderson.

Oedipus the King

Thebes is suffering. A disease is plaguing the land. The people of Thebes want help and demand answers but are caught between squabbling leaders, who are full of their own self-importance and are blind to the truth. Despite being first performed over 2 millennia ago, Sophocles’ Oedipus the King can still engage with contemporary audiences, probably never more so than right now!

A Matter of Time

Why does time so often feel so oppressive? And did it always have to be this way? Part history lesson, part cabaret show, and part heart-rending personal quest, ‘A Matter of Time’ is an attempt to come to terms with a world in which the clock is always ticking. The debut solo show from Anjali Singh.

Featuring songs! Fun history facts! ‘Hamilton’ references! And silliness!

★★★★ “Special…. Singh is a versatile performer, with a voice to be heard. Do not miss it.” Broadway Baby

Spaces

Spaces is an anthology of audio plays where each immersive story draws you into a different audio location. Born from a world in lockdown, many of the plays deal with themes of isolation and connection. Exploring ordinary spaces – a toilet cubicle, a car, a bath, a corridor, IKEA – each short play invites you to enjoy extraordinary and intimate stories.
Written by emerging script writers in an experimental and exploratory workshop convention, the project aimed to use sound and performance to bring theatre to remote audiences. The plays reflect the wonderful breadth of what audio theatre has to offer.
