Close Quarters

by Kate Bowen
directed by Kate Wasserberg

“You were the only folk out of five thousand who got through – you’re legit badass.”

Cormack, Findlay and Davies are the elite. They are the first generation of female soldiers to serve in the British infantry in close combat roles, ever. They’ve aced physical tests only 5% of female soldiers can pass; they’ve been trained to shoot, fight and kill. They’ve proven their exceptional skill and discipline – while everyone around them questions whether they should even be allowed to serve. And now they’re about to join the action.

Kate Bowen’s taut, funny and powerful thriller follows three very different, pioneering young women in the world’s most dangerous workplace.

Dizzyingly intelligent and beautifully judged

The Remains of the Day

adapted by Barney Norris
based on the novel by Kazuo ishiguro
directed by Christopher Haydon

2017 Nobel Prize winner Kazuo Ishiguro’s masterpiece of memory and regret entranced millions as a novel and a BAFTA-winning Merchant Ivory film. As fires rage through Europe during and after the second world war, The Remains of the Day exposes the terrible choices hidden behind the manicured gardens and formal dinners of an English stately home.

A co-production by Out of Joint and Royal & Derngate, Northampton, in association with Oxford Playhouse

Rita, Sue and Bob Too

by Andrea Dunbar
directed by Kate Wasserberg

Best friends Rita and Sue get a lift home from married Bob after babysitting his kids and the three start a fling each thinks they can control. Told with wicked humour and a great ear for dialogue, Andrea Dunbar’s semi-autobiographical play is a vivid portrait of girls caught between brutal childhood and an unpromising future, both hungry for adult adventure.

A great production - a blast of real life
