30 Jan – 2 Feb at 8pm
By Pippa Thornton, presented by Flipside Theatre
You’re young, single, and you can still drink your body weight in tequila without feeling like your head is going to explode the next day. You’re a Fresher.
It’s 2019 and it’s going to be the best year of Holly’s life: new friends, new freedom, new ways of drinking and dancing into glittery oblivion. Everything would be great, if only she could keep her nightmares at bay.
A darkly comic new play about making friends and having fun. Oh, and maybe a little bit of murder…
Praise for Flipside Theatre: “imaginatively staged, witty and piercing […] the cast are outstanding.” ★★★★ Theatre Bath
Providence: The Shadow Over Lovecraft
8th & 9th Feb at 8pm
Presented by Dominic Allen & Simon Maeder
Prepare to be amazed, terrified, and driven insane! Great Cthulhu may be sleeping beneath the sea, but in Providence, Rhode Island, Lovecraft can’t get a wink. Join the morose and miserable Howard Phillips Lovecraft, author of ‘The Call of Cthulhu’, ‘Shadow Over Innsmouth’ and other incredibly weird tales, as he contemplates the many mistakes that make up his life.
His father went mad when he was four. He suffered a mental breakdown when he was eighteen. He lived with his overprotective mother until he was thirty. He loathed seafood, loved coffee and hated immigrants. Indeed he despised anyone who wasn’t an 18th century English Gentleman. But he hated himself most of all. Lovecraft’s losses were fortunately our gains as his enigmatic, tortured mind gave birth to a body of work we now consider as the foundations of the modern horror genre.
Using physical comedy, live music and all the classic horror tropes you can rattle a chain at, Dominic Allen (Belt-Up, A Common Man) and Simon Maeder (Superbolt Theatre) explore a wretched life and ask a haunting question: can any love be salvaged from one so filled with hate?
WINNER of VAULTS Festival ‘Pick of the Week’ award.
“An experience which takes the gloomy eldritch horror which one might expect and replaces it with belly-laughs and fascination” ★★★★★ British Theatre Guide

Where the Hell is Bernard?
2nd Mar at 8pm

Antigone na h’Eireann
9th Mar at 7:30pm
By James Beagon
Presented by Aulos Productions
Following a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run, this new Northern Irish adaptation of the myth comes to the South West for the first time.
A hard-border Brexit has severed Ireland in two. Driven by faith to resurrect the IRA, Annie battles to bring her family the honour they deserve. In the shadow of her father and the memory of the Disappeared, faith, family and factions collide.
A fresh take on the story by multi award-winning writer James Beagon, inspired by Sophocles and other sources.
