MODA

What is the true cost of fashion?

Devised by a company of 20 young actors from East15 Ba in World Theatre, Moda is a bold, funny and urgent response to youth excessive consumerism and its effect on people and the environment. Using bouffon, puppetry, movement, pop songs and traditional music from Romania, India and Brazil, it had three sellout shows at the Clifftown theatre as part of Revolution!

PIGHEAD

by Japanese playwright Toshinobu Kojo

When a group of Tokyo office workers are faced with the re-structuring of their company, what begins as a civilised and normal set of negotiations quickly descends into a savage struggle for survival. Office and gender politics collide with a comic yet sinister world of broken rules and anarchy.

Thank you for the support-in-kind from the Japan Foundation and StoneCrabs Theatre.

THE PENELOPIAD

By Margaret Atwood

Performed at the Arcola Theatre Main House by the MA in Acting International from East15 Drama School. 
As portrayed in Homer's Odyssey, Penelope - wife of Odysseus and cousin of the beautiful Helen of Troy - has become a symbol of wifely duty and devotion, enduring twenty years of waiting when her husband goes off to fight in the Trojan War. As she fends off the attentions of a hundred greedy suitors, travelling minstrels regale her with news of Odysseus' epic adventures around the Mediterranean. When Odysseus finally comes home, he kills her suitors and then, inexplicably hangs Penelope's twelve beloved maids. Now, Penelope and her chorus of wronged maids get the chance to tell their side of the story, through song, dance and storytelling.

GIRLS LIKE THAT

By Canadian playwright Evan Placey

A play exploring the pressures on young people today in the wake of advancing technology.

When a naked photograph of Scarlett goes viral, she becomes the centre of attention for all the wrong reasons. But while rumours run wild and everyone forms an opinion, Scarlett just stays silent. Named Best Play for Young Audiences at the Writers' Guild of Great Britain Awards 2015.
