More of a piece of performance art than a play, Desire Caught by The Tail is a surrealist work that was penned by Pablo Picasso in 1941. First performed as a rehearsed reading in France shortly before its occupation, with the likes of Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus in occupied France, it has rarely been performed since its inception.

Salmon and Wales, Matthew's Yard - Review

…I live on the second floor
I live upstairs from you
Yes I think you've seen me before

If you hear something late at night
Some kind of trouble, some kind of fight
Just don't ask me what it was…

Lucy, Lucy and Lucy Barfield - Review

Lucy, Lucy and Lucy Barfield details Lucy Grace's personal journey of discovering the “real” Lucy. Not just CS Lewis’s god-daughter named on the flyleaf of The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, but also Lucy Grace herself, from a girl to a woman, who has to integrate her imagination with her everyday life. A very interesting production, mixing fantasy and reality in a precise and measured way that works well with its theme.
