Adam & Eve by Tim Cook

Our latest title Adam & Eve by Tim Cook is available to purchase now.

A modern day Genesis story. 

Newlyweds Adam & Eve are moving to the countryside, leaving the city behind for good. They’re going to buy a house, start a family and live happily ever after. But when Adam is suspended from work and accusations are made, they’re forced to question how well they really know each other.

Adam & Eve is a startling new play about trust, feminism and the nature of accusations from award-winning Royal Court Young Writer Tim Cook. It comes to The Hope Theatre after a critically acclaimed run last year.

Guesthouse by Nicola Werenowska presented by Eastern Angles

Guesthouse by Nicola Werenowska

Tensions are high in Clacton-on-Sea. Guesthouse owner Val has been taken ill and both her estranged daughter Lisa and ambitious grand-daughter Chloe have arrived to lend a hand. Chloe is close to Val, having spent most of her childhood raised by her grandmother. But Lisa and her mother are not on best terms. In this poignant and beautifully observed drama, three generations of women have to set aside differences as they decide the fate of their family-run B & B.

Guesthouse asks what's it like when the town you were proud to grow up in becomes impoverished? What does it take to keep going? And what does it take to face the truth?

Good Girl Transfers To The West End

Naomi Sheldon’s award-winning debut play Good Girl transfers to Trafalgar Studios 2 from 5th to 31st March. Press night will be held on Tuesday 6th March at 7.00pm.

A bold, provocative and darkly comic coming-of-age tale that interrogates the experience of a young girl growing up in the 90s, Good Girl is a timely and distinctive piece that offers a vital new perspective to current dialogue about female experience. Sheldon’s unusually inclusive and charming form of storytelling allows her to candidly explore sex, masturbation and mental health, evoking the most wonderful and terrifying moments of growing up.

The opening week at Trafalgar Studios coincides with both International Women’s Day on Thursday 8th March and the Women Of The World Festival at Southbank Centre from 7th to 11th March, where Naomi Sheldon will participate in a panel discussion and perform excerpts from the show. This timely production has been praised by Academy Award winner Emma Thompson who described the show as “Cutting edge truth and hilarity from one of the freshest young voices this century. Don’t miss Naomi Sheldon’s Good Girl.”

Winner of Voice’s Pick of the Fringe Award, Good Girl is a semi-autobiographical story that examines the dangers of defining ourselves by the opinions of others, delving into the conflict between the need to please and the frenzied faux feminist rebellion of 90s ‘girl power’. GG’s story brings together the gossipy teenage troubles of ‘Clarissa Explains It All’ and the pervasive disorientation of ‘The Bell Jar’ to create a piece that is at once dark, humorous and hopeful.
