Bottom

Directed by BA (Hons) Acting graduate Rachel Lemon.

Join Willy for a queer coming-of-age remix, as he questions if ‘bottom’ in the bedroom means ‘bottom’ in life – and whether Beyoncé can help put his love on top. With a cracking soundtrack, Willy’s funny, honest and open-hearted storytelling yanks the lid off the queer experience. This is for anyone who hates making the first move, who thinks they are unlovable and has tried to be someone they're not.

Venue: Summerhall - Cairns Lecture Theatre
Dates: 1, 3-12, 14-19 & 21-26 August

Extremism

Directed by BA (Hons) Acting graduate Will McGinley

The police just took Jamal away. Because Miss Tomlinson called them. Because she had to. Because of Prevent. But now Miss Tomlinson and the police are gone and all that’s left is a shell-shocked class. Who knew Jamal? What did he do? And what is gonna happen next? A play about fear, friendship and the creeping polarisation of our society.
