‘You ever had this?
A Feeling?
Not a headache,
Not a,
Bellyache…
Just.’

Ollie is a man trapped in a world of recreational drug use and health issues, Blue is a woman trapped in our world. Together they share a feeling. They just haven’t figured out what that is. In/Out (A Feeling) is an explosive exploration into London’s sex trade, told through the perspective of the consumer and supplier and supported by Unseen. A charity working towards a world without slavery and supporting those affected.

LETTERS FROM EVERYONE

Performed at: Drayton Arms Theatre, West London
Writer: Steven Lally
Director: Niall Phillips

“I wasn’t going to write a letter. It would only make me feel better and I don’t want to. Feeling like this is the piece bit of you I have.”

Sam is a homeless girl who begs by a roadside memorial. Andy’s the grieving father who’s desperate to move her. Jamie’s a posh kid who thinks he can help. And Julia. She’s a copper and deep in her bones she knows that there’s more to this than meets the eye. 'Letters From Everyone' is a play about how we live and grieve. About the hold the dead have over the living. But most of all it’s about London and the stories you find on every street…


Tom & Jerry

Performed at: Drayton Arms Theatre, West London
Writer: Nick Myles
Director: Niall Phillips


Tom & Jerry is the history of a relationship in four chaotic chapters. From their first ridiculous meeting onwards, Tom and Jerry are a couple chasing completely different goals, and yet something about their chemistry means the attraction stays real, no matter how much emotional furniture gets broken along the way. This is a play about compatibility, loyalty, commitment... but most of all it's a play about love.
