Filled with dark humor, whisky and the wanton destruction of property, Sam Shephard's True West is a gritty character study that explores an encounter between two estranged brothers. Austin is a successful Hollywood screenwriter whose brother Lee is a violent and menacing drifter and small-time thief. Their separate lives come crashing together after a chance meeting at their mother's house. Lee forces himself onto one of Austin's writing projects and the two very different brothers gradually start to take on each other's roles. In what some consider Shepard's signature piece and masterwork, the two brothers battle for survival and their own salvation, but they might destroy each other (and their mom's house) before they find it.

Adapted by Stephen Mallatratt from the Book by Susan Hill
Directed by Stephen Hulsey
Arthur Kipps, a middle-aged solicitor, hires a theatre and the services of a professional actor to help him re-enact, and thereby hopefully exorcise, a ghostly event which befell him many years previously with horrifyingly tragic results. Still running in London’s West End after 20 years, The Woman In Black treads in the footsteps of the classic ghost story, following the tradition of Charles Dickens and Henry James. It relies on atmosphere, a vivid sense of place, on hints and glimpses and suggestions, on what is shadowy, heard and sometimes only half-seen, to chill the audience’s blood to the marrow. Not for the faint of heart.
