Show Info

A Respectable Widow Takes to Vulgarity
By Douglas Maxwell 
Directed by Orla O'Loughlin 
With Joanna Tope and Gavin Jon Wright
 

Mourning her husband's death, Annabelle strikes up an unlikely relationship with his potty-mouthed employee, Jim. As she enters into Jim's un-finishing school, Annabelle finally finds her own voice and gets herself heard. This riotous explosion of expletives addresses how we express and process our grief.

Clean
By Sabrina Mahfouz 
Directed by Orla O'Loughlin
With Emma Dennis-Edwards, Jade Anouka, and Chloe Massey

Welcome to the world of London's top female underground criminals on their biggest job yet, an international heist. Zainab, Chloe and Katya are three fast-talking, no-nonsense criminal heroines who mean business. Clean, by poet and playwright Sabrina Mahfouz, is razor-sharp and effortlessly slick.
