CRAFT Theatre Presents, ‘Dante's Inferno: A Modern Telling.’
If you think Dante's Inferno doesn't need another postmodern kooky reworking, think again. In the capable hands of Craft Theatre, Dante Alighieri’s masterpiece is intense, compelling and – crucially – a pleasure to watch. We all have our circles of hell to surmount in everyday life. 700 years on, Inferno is as relevant as ever. 18 and up only. No Late Entry.
January 8- Feb 1. £12/£10
8pm start, except Sundays 6pm start.

Presented by Tit4Twat Theatre
'Interactive theatre just got brutal.'
Deliciously desperate for a split-second in the limelight, four reality TV rejects have devised the ultimate way to show the industry what they're capable of. Competing head-to-head in their 'genuinely original' gameshow pilot, the university dropouts hope to engage your attention, stimulate your delight and win your vote. Shit may go down. Who knows? You (and your electronic voting handset) decide.
Warning: 16+, stupidity and real violence guaranteed
Hilarious, heartbreaking and irresistibly controversial, 'Losers' questions whether prime-time entertainment show contestants (and audiences) may have become victims of a larger and more brutal force. 'Losers' offers an unsettling insight into the gamified universes of our obsessive televised world, and is guaranteed to make an impact.

An Awkward Excuse delves into the intricacies of the everyday, finding the extraordinary within the ordinary, seeking to question the habitual routine of an individual as a thing of purpose or desire, an event of logical explanation or repetitive daily encounter.
Do we create a routine to get us through the everyday monotony?
Is routine created on the coincidence of similar events occurring each day?
Or have we fashioned our behavior in order to assert ourselves on our daily activities?
Two’s A Crowd will probably not answer any of this…

A comedy show that never got funny.

Performance @ The Rag.
Venues are less likely to support new work from new artists because of the venues need to generate their revenues. Unfortunately, the current ‘make money’ ideology is strangling any real creative development as only the types of shows or performers that have a track record of ticket sales, or are rich enough to buy space from prime venues, are regularly programmed.
