by Edward Albee

Two very different men meet by chance in Central Park on a sunny Sunday afternoon. A play about isolation, social disparity, hope and connection, and the inhumanity of modern life. Witty, strange, but ultimately poignant and grounded, the friendly chat they begin will have profound effects on the direction of both their lives.

by Mark C. Hewitt
Mark C. Hewitt’s play The Revenge Fantasy Club was shortlisted for the Best New Play Award at Brighton Fringe 2013. His latest, Prison Dialogues, consists of interweaving male and female narratives set in the everyday world of prison. Two men, three women and a text full of banter that leans playfully towards the futile – but fun.

21st - 23 May @ 7.00pm
Paler, Still tells a story set in Ireland, but it is not just a story for the Irish. This small country is a microcosm for something we see happening all over the Western World. The poverty gap widens, some opportunities only available to a select few, society circling back on itself again and again and our play asks, what is the cost of progress? What is lost as we charge into the future? Are some people always left behind? And, if we despair at society, can we simply opt out?
Talking Heads -
A Lady of Letters & A Bed Among the Lentils
18 - 20 June @ 7.45pm
by Alan Bennett
Bedlamb theatre brings you two classic monologues of 20th century British writing with a production of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads. Bennett uses a rich canvas of recognisable references and everyday life to paint a picture of two seemingly trapped women who find freedom in unconventional ways. The master of capturing our daily rituals, undermined with biting wit, these stories show how the pain of isolation can separate us from achieving our dreams and desires.
