Paradoxy, 17th to 20th February, 19:30 and 14:30 on Thursday and Saturday
Written by Gareth Jandrell. At what point does a personality kink become a character flaw? When does an authority become authoritarian? And where on earth are your glasses? In a digital world where being human shifts and reconstructs daily, we are immersed in stories of people redefining, redesigning and representing themselves in any way they can. What harm is there in posing as a body-builder, an insurance clerk, or an alien if no-one can see you? And why shouldn’t we lie around the edges a bit on our dating profiles? After all, there are no rules in the digital world, right? This year for the first time, final year students from one of the UK’s top drama schools bring a newly commissioned play to Pegasus prior to its transfer to London.
Cinderella Green the Recycling Queen, 10th April, 11:00 and 14:00
A puppet play of rubbish, recycling and romance with Emma Boor and Hanna Rhodes. The show is filled with crazy characters, catchy sing-along songs and the magical puppets made from household objects. For ages 5 and under.
Stones In His Pockets, 28th April, 19:30
A quiet Irish village community is turned upside down with the arrival of a Hollywood film crew, looking for the ‘real’ Ireland for their latest schmaltzy blockbuster. A pair of extras, Charlie and Jake, watch with amazement, envy and delight as cultures clash, divas strop, and everyone fights over the last portion of lemon meringue pie.
Reviews of A Christmas Carol
4th December 2015 to 2nd January 2016.
There are reviews from the Oxford Times ("an unmissable festive treat" 4/5) and Daily Info ("included puppetry and mime interspersed with slapstick, audience participation and moments of intense drama and emotion... a production which brought tears to my eyes, and challenged me, again and again to think about the real spirit of Christmas").
