Mixing the voices of her parents with tragic and, at times, highly comedic moments- you will not know if you are supposed to laugh or cry. 


Hell, go ahead and do both. Let us submerge ourselves in the lighter side of a debilitating, severe, life changing head injury and emerge…well not that different really, but being able to pronounce subdural hematoma so that’s something.

WEDNESDAY 22ND  - FRIDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER 

BYSMAL BOYS 


It's 1977 and for the first time in Fire Brigade history, a national strike threatens to bring the country to a stand still.
In a quiet corner of Cheshire, the lads of Blue Watch, Macclesfield are waiting with baited breath to see what this means for them. Will their hopes blaze to union glory or smoulder to ashes and what will this mean for the Brigade, their loved ones and the lads themselves?


Set against the true life backdrop of the strike action as autumn gives way to the Winter of Discontent. Genders' new play explores this rarely examined period of history and the impact that is still felt today.


Conflictive, comic yet utterly compassionate, the boys of Blue Watch navigate their individual stories and that of their brotherhood. It may just be 30% but is that all they really stand to lose?

WEDNESDAY 29TH & THURSDAY 30TH SEPTEMBER 2021


SANDY BY ANNA PELLEGRINI

Sandy is a two hander play about femininity and womanhood. The show explores the way in which definitions can create meanings that then latch on to things and to people in an almost unremovable way. By exploring the relationship between a woman and a “female” object, the play reveals what both their relationship is to the world and society as a whole.

If an object had consciousness, what would its thoughts be? What experience of the world would it have? And how would human beings look like from its perspective? Sandy highlights the similarity and differences existing between two distant and yet congruent female perspectives while triggering a reflection about our society and ourselves.
