{ DEAR DAVE } 
by Façade Theatre
Three women take the time over a bottle (or three) of wine to come up with the easiest, softest, kindest, most humane way to break it off with their male friend.
It’s time to toss Dave out like a semi-used condom.

{ IS THAT WRONG? }
by Steve Fossey
In the days before we laid down on the couch to have a psychotherapist exercise our demons, we confessed our thoughts in the pub to anyone that would listen. The landlord preceded Freud and the pub is the place where we are able to bear our souls. We just need others to listen.

{ GUIDE TO THE PERFECT NIGHT OUT }
by Non Applicable Dance Collective
A practical guide for the perfect night out, with two ‘fully qualified’ course instructors, who will provide a step by step program from start of the night to the finish. Come and be part of a pre-drinking, staggering, crowded and jaunty night, where reality and surreal lines blur and reform. Let your senses be tickled by music, voice, visuals and movement.

{ PAT, KAT, PEGGY, DOT }
by Eggs Collective
Pat, Kat, Peggy, Dot is our homage to boozy nights out, soap operas and tarts with hearts.
Using only text lifted from the BBC Eastenders’ archives, Eggs Collective unleash the most succulent cat fight any audience has ever seen.
“So of course the bitch persona appeals to us; it is the illusion of liberation, liberty and abandon. What if you want to be large in a world that wants you to be small?”
(Wurtzel, Bitch, 1998)

{ LET’S GET OBLITERATED }
by Fine Chisel
The Fine Chisel band are in town for one night only. There will be drinking. There will be foot-stomping live folk music. There will be raucous sing-alongs and shambolic dancing. Grab yourself a glass and come join them…

Mucho Love x
