Leave. To Remain (An Aristophanic Brexit Tale)
Debuted 31st August 2017
In a post-Article 50 alt-reality Britain is going to the dogs. Government has outsourced democracy to a tv voting show, pizza has been banned for its foreign origins and a visa to France now costs 30 Euros (£300). Eventually one man has enough and decides to rejoin the EU idependently. But with anti-European inspectors, a chorus of nationalists and Ol' Nige out to get him, how will Dick fare?
Based on 'The Acharnians' by Aristophanes, Ollie Harrington's "original and naturally funny" script brings all the silliness and satire of ancient Greek comedy to contemporary Britain.

Written by Rose Goodbody and based on Aeschylus’ Agamemnon, Cassandra takes us on a very personal journey through some of the struggles many women face in their lives; the choice between what’s expected of them and how they feel. Touching on the themes of #metoo and #timesup, Cassandra is an exploration of giving a voiceless woman an audience.
