Neighbourhood Watch by Alan Ayckbourn
Director – Jamie Yates
Brother and sister Martin and Hilda Massie live together, leading a quiet, Christian existence in the confines of the Bluebell Hill Development. Just as they are preparing for a housewarming gathering, their peace is shattered by a young trespasser in their garden. The Massies’ neighbours congregate in their living room and together they agree to form a neighbourhood watch group to safeguard against further incidents. But after the Massies’ beloved garden gnome Monty is thrown through their window, matters swiftly escalate, complicated by Martin’s burgeoning romance with Amy, wife of Gareth, who was formerly involved with Luther, husband of Magda… What begins as a well-intentioned scheme for a safer community ends in violence and acrimony.

The Lieutenant of Inishmore by Martin McDonagh
Directed by Nick Davey
Set in Ireland in 1993. The Northern Ireland peace process is taking its faltering first steps, and INLA man Mad Padraic is hard at work pulling out the toenails of Belfast drug pusher James, when the news comes through that his beloved cat, Wee Thomas, is poorly. Instead of slicing off James’s right nipple, as planned, he heads back home to the island of Inishmore. But, when he arrives at the family home, he discovers that Wee Thomas isn’t sick but has had his brains squeezed out like toothpaste.

Just as he’s about to put a bullet through Dad’s head, there’s an unexpected knock at the door.

Urinetown the Musical by Greg Kotis
Directed by Andrew Knight
Set in a Gotham-like city overcome by ecological disaster, Urinetown is a tongue-in-cheek tale of greed, corruption, love and revolution in a time when water is worth its very weight in gold.
