Forgiving Shakespeare
Written in iambic pentameter and using Jacobean language and stage conventions, Forgiving Shakespeare swings between Stratford, London and Madrid in a comedy of literary theft and friendship restored. Featuring John Fletcher, Shakespeare, Cervantes, the god Mercury and a donkey named Orpheus.

Falling Bodies
The Rise, the first new play in 10 years from one-time enfant terrible Julian Donder, will, he claims, shatter taboos about the naked body and liberate its audience from 2,000 years of Christian shame. In this comedy, ambition collides with reality as Donder’s mis-matched company struggle with financial strife, intellectual vanity, the prevention of onstage ‘shrinkage’ and finding an acceptable alternative to the word ‘vagina’.
