Lab Works 2 by MA Theatre Lab
Original 'theatre-shorts' experimenting with a range of ideas, practice and forms; Lab Works returns with work-in-development performances across two programmes from our MA Theatre Lab students. Ian Morgan, Course Leader invites you to come and watch as students test out ideas and develop performance in a festival of new work as part of their training.
Possibly messy and very theatrical.
Tickets are £10 and £5 concessions.

Jellyfish Is a Thing with Feathers
Humans tell stories, we always tell stories. But what happens to those stories when the mind doesn’t remember them, but the body can?
This is a story of forgetting and remembering. Of friendship and loss. Of jam and jellyfish.
Poster by Theodore Tamvakis.

Once Upon a Time
Created and performed by Valeriia Poholsha.
Once upon a time, in a very small village, people made up rules which others tried to break.
Aren't rules made to be obeyed? Some say that rules protect us from danger. What is this danger - a monster? Or something more unknown, more mysterious? Once Upon a Time is a cautionary tale for grown-up toddlers and their monsters, about a stubborn little girl who goes exploring in the woods, against her parents' wishes.
Created and performed by Shantel Kristina.
A woman wakes up to find that she is dead, she has to remember and understand the events that took place in order to move on.
Content warnings: loud sounds, reference to domestic violence, violence against women and death.
A list of enemies. A detail that is not poetic, like a guy who is standing. It isn’t about pretending. Every word I say is a promise. Why did you come here? A tree house built from the wood of a coffin. A greater game. A period drama. I am sorry. 20. I don't believe you. Ce l’hai. Tell me what you see. A prom night. We don’t speak about a memory as if it were something that could be changed. If Destroyed Still True.
