Jonny & the Baptists: The World is a Mess, Here are Some Songs

Testosterone

03 May 2018

What does it mean to be a man or a woman?
Is gender innate or is it nurtured?
Kit is in an amusing and unique position, having transitioned from female to male in his early thirties, he has experienced adult life on both sides of the gender fence, giving him the opportunity to notice what differences there are in how he is treated by society - what he gains and what he loses by becoming a man. However, his biggest challenge comes when he enters a male gym changing room for the first time and is confronted by masculinity in all its forms - the good, the bad and the ugly. What kind of man will he be when he finishes changing?

Austen’s Women

23 May 2018

From the creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography comes another 5-star international hit.
Thirteen of Jane Austen’s heroines come to life in this bold revisiting of some of literature’s most celebrated works.  In this much-loved Edinburgh sell-out hit, using only Austen’s words, Rebecca Vaughan (Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Christmas Gothic, Dalloway, I, Elizabeth, Female Gothic) becomes Emma Woodhouse, Lizzy Bennet, Mrs Norris, Miss Bates and nine other beautifully observed women in critical moments from Austen’s major novels (including Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility and Emma) and lesser known or unfinished works. Directed by Olivier Award winner, Guy Masterson (Morecambe).
