Victoria’s Knickers

By Josh Azouz

Director Annie Fitzmaurice 
Musical Director Lelee Zhané
Set / Costume Designer Libbie Day
Lighting Designer Edd Knight
 

Breaking into Buckingham Palace is not easy when you’re a 17 year old boy. But it seems Ed Jones has done it several times, sometimes driven by Chartist fervor, sometimes from an obsession with Royal laundry. Victoria’s Knickers is an outrageous, anachronistic, crude and violent farce in which the young Queen fights to save herself, her lover and her crown, while all around her fight for power. And outside the palace, the nation fights with itself.

The Gut Girls

By Sarah Daniels

Director Gary Pillai
Designer Victoria Maytom 
Lighting Designer Abi Turner 

Deptford, 1900. Five raucous, brave and funny young women make a living hacking and scraping carcasses in a Cattle abbatoir. Theirs is a life of long hours and small, hard fought victories. But the foul smelling shed protects against hunger and cold and is a refuge for fallen women. No need to risk a violent marriage or the dangers of childbirth if you can work there with your mates. That is, until new tariffs threaten meat imports, and rumours of sackings begin to circulate. And all this time the local Duchess Lady Helena has decided she will save the girls from their degeneracy, offering lessons in good manners with the bribe of free cakes. 

Performances dates
