Description

Different ways of life aren't so far away from ours...

"Between a Man and a Woman" is a gripping, thrilling and heartbreaking story of domestic abuse. A fast paced drama that questions if abuse is a learned behavior or something that is within us? It gives us an insight into what happens behind closed doors and whether that is actually just between husband and wife or whether it involves a larger number of people.

"F*ckingLifeMate" is an outrageous dark comedy. How does the area in which we grow up affect us? If what you see is what you know, does that mark your card from the start? The play follows Kirsty, a girl growing up on an estate in Thamesmead in South East London, trapped in the welfare system. Crime rate is high, teenage pregnancy is common and being gay is still not okay. Kirsty and her friends maneuver their way through this way of life, whilst dealing with their troublesome families and home-lives.

The first fully staged production of "Between a Man and a Woman" premiered at The Bread & Roses Theatre in 2017 and "F*ckingLifeMate" had its world premiere at The Bread & Roses Theatre in 2018.
