THE FIX
Knock & Run Theatre

 

How do you justify the unjustifiable? To convince yourself that a decision, so extreme, so final, makes perfect sense? Do the solutions - the fixes - we devise in our darkest moments have to make sense to anyone but you? The Fix poses these very question, as two complete strangers find themselves trapped together on the rooftop of a high-rise.

 

The Fix is a gritty black comedy/drama that highlights issues that are both confronting and heart-breaking as each man grapples with their own inner demons, family conflicts and ghosts from the past that have determined the directions they have each taken in life. It soon becomes clear that, while they are very different people, their stories are not so different.

COCK

Stooged Theatre is thrilled to be making their debut at the Royal Exchange, staging the winner of the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement, Cock by Mike Bartlett.

"Exhilarating! Robust and rollicking. Mike Bartlett's dialogue crackles and pops..." —The New Yorker

"★★★★ When it’s funny it’s hilarious, and when it moves you, it’s a theatrical gut-punch." — Herald Sun

John needs a break from his needy boyfriend, he needs to find himself and he needs to be single.

John then meets the girl of his dreams.

Torn between the two, John flip flops between male and female, straight and gay, whatever he is. Full of guilt and indecision, John feels the pressure as, the truth be told, he doesn't know what he needs. And his boyfriend and new girlfriend need him to decide.

Wowing audiences in London, New York, Melbourne and Sydney, Mike Bartlett's Cock is a wild exploration of sexuality and ambivalence, and as lovers battle for their claim, we learn this is the ultimate cockfight.

Cock is directed by Mathew Lee (The Pillowman, Equus) and is assisted by Charlotte De Wit (Lord of the Flies).

LIEUTENANT OF INISHMORE

 

 

The Lowbrow Outfit presents, Martin McDonagh's chaotic black comedy,

"The Lieutenant of Inshore"
Who knocked 'Mad Padraic's' cat over on a lonely road on the island of inishmore and was it an accident? He'll want to know when he gets back from a stint of torture and chip-shop bombing in Northern Ireland; he loves his cat more than life itself.
"McDonagh's play is hugely enjoyable black satire on the mindset that has led to cycles of violence and generations of misery in Ireland...this is a terrific play about a serious subject that's touched with a monty pythonesque insanity." - Guardian
Black cats, bicycles, madmen, nipples and toenails (or the lack of), bombs in chip shops, mum trampling, drug dealing, lonely roads, blind cows, dismembered terrorists, what more do you want?

Historical drama directed by István Szabó starring Klaus Maria
Brandauer, and Erland Josephson (Germany 1988, 140 min)
After the World War I, Schneider, a man with strong powers of
empathy and of clairvoyance, changes his name to Eric Jan
Hanussen and goes to Berlin, as a hypnotist and clairvoyant
performing in halls and theatres. He always speaks the truth, which
brings him to the attention of powerful Nazis. He predicts their rise
(good propaganda for them) and their violence (not so good). He's in
pain and at risk. What is Hanussen's future? (www.imdb.com).
