Life Without Me poster

Synopsis:

Written by the much-awarded playwright Daniel Keene, this is a funny, honest and heartwarming story that invites us to question life itself, or at least our own. Set in a 2-star hotel lobby, capturing the emotional truth of the almost absurd characters, from the less than competent hotel manager to the slightly obscure guests, Daniel Keene has created a symbolic world of its own. A mix of drifters in search of the concept of happiness, trying to move on whilst simultaneously taking up residence in this unseemly perfect sanctuary for lost souls. This thought-provoking play will leave you inspired to question your place in the world; past, present and future. Somehow you may be left feeling awkwardly familiar. “My life just seems to go on, but ... without me in it”.

Exit Laughing poster

Synopsis:

When the biggest highlight of your life for the past thirty years has been your weekly card night out with the girls, what do you do when one of your foursome inconveniently dies?  If you’re Connie, Leona and Millie, three southern ladies from Birmingham you do the most daring thing you’ve ever done.  You “borrow” the ashes from the funeral home for one last card game and the wildest, most exciting night of their lives begins with a police raid, a stripper, laughs and a whole new way of looking at all the fun you can have when you’re truly living.
