Sitting Room + the return of For the Best

16 September 2015

A double bill of theatre from Operating Theatre who produce thought-provoking drama highlighting health and social issues.
Sitting Room: Elaine’s niece Annabelle doesn’t think much of her aunt. Just plain selfish as far as Annabelle is concerned.  An old hippy expecting the state to look after you, that’s you, according to Annabelle. But will the state look after her, that’s the question Elaine finds herself asking.  What will things be like in twenty years time for the old peace and love people like her who never bothered about things like pensions….?

Into Thin Air

01 October 2015

She was doing okay.  She had a good job, a great relationship, a nice little flat with cheap wine in the fridge and expensive cushions on the sofa. She was being everything to everyone and juggling all the things that keep a person afloat.

We Are Brontë

29 October 2015

We Are Brontë is a piece of comic visual theatre inspired by the real and imaginary worlds of Yorkshire’s literary siblings, presented in Publick Transport’s irreverent style. Physical theatre collides with stand-up, clowning and improvisation as two performers deconstruct not only gothic themes of love, madness, repression and revenge, but also themselves. Part play, part enquiry into the act of putting on a play, this promises to be no ordinary Brontë adaptation.

And Now: The World!

12 November 2015

We want to be supermodels or get on TV, because otherwise we'll just sit at our computers anonymously hating each other.
And Now: The World! is a story about being young in a digital world; about being a superhero caught in a web; about being able to spend more time with your friends online than face to face.  If your whole life is online, can you start a revolution and stay #ontrend?

Going Viral

26 November 2015

Written and performed by Daniel Bye
A new virus has broken out. Everyone in the world starts weeping. What now?
Going Viral is a show about how things spread. Drawing on the science of epidemics, it explores the spread of disease, of panic, of ideas. It shows how our society reacts, and how our connected world makes us all more vulnerable - and more human. But not equally so.
