    Dr Richard Myers, the great IVF innovator, is virtually a secular saint because of the thousands of babies he has created throughout his career. Now, his family have gathered at his home on Manhattan's Upper West Side to see him receive a lifetime achievement award.
    It's not long before this fractious group, more accustomed to debate than empathy, fall into dispute once again: over conflicting Thanksgiving memories, polarised opinions on investment banking, and how best to care for their ailing father. And crucially, who will inherit Richard's wealth and his prestigious science institution?
    A vivid and thrilling portrait of a brilliantly dysfunctional family, Alexis Zegerman's The Fever Syndrome was first produced at Hampstead Theatre, London, in March 2022, directed by Roxana Silbert.

    “O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;It is the green-ey'd monster, which doth mockThe meat it feeds on.”Othello is a tragedy play by William Shakespeare, written in the middle of his career in 1603. The story follows Othello, a general in the Venetian army, and Iago, a treacherous soldier who conspires against him to make him believe that his wife is unfaithful. Like many other Shakespearean plays, Othello features a cast of dynamic characters, murder plots, marital affairs, revenge, and witty writing.Othello is an important work of Shakespeare as it has thorough examinations of many of Shakespeare’s preferred themes and tropes. Othello is known for its themes of jealousy and revenge, racial discrimination, romance, betrayal, and repentance. Though Othello may not be the first tragedy that comes to mind when discussing Shakespeare, it has a legacy of its own and is performed and enjoyed by modern audiences, both on stage and screen. The timeless themes represented within are indicative of Shakespeare’s indelible understanding of humanity and the motivations that drive people to extreme actions.

    Rejoice in the strange and the ordinary in this contemplative collection of poetry from the celebrated author of Fahrenheit 451.One of the most well-known figures in modern fantasy and science fiction, often credited for heralding the genre into the mainstream, Ray Bradbury delights readers time and time again with writing that pushes the boundaries of reality. In this outstanding collection, Bradbury delivers poem after poem full of hope, fear, philosophy and faith. As in his work of speculative fiction, Bradbury’s unique perspective on humanity graces every page.From technology to Ty Cobb, strawberry shortcake and death, this selection delivers some of Bradbury’s best. Some of his most beloved poetry, including “They Have Not Seen the Stars,” “This Attic Where the Meadow Greens,” “There Are No Ghosts in Catholic Spain,” “Farewell Summer,” “Once the Years Were Numerous and the Funerals Few,” “Doing Is Being,” and “We Are The Reliquaries of Lost Time,” is featured.Humorous, thoughtful, and every bit as out of this world as readers have come to expect from the legend, this is a must-have for collectors and new readers alike.“Let us now praise Ray Bradbury, the uncrowned poet laureate of science fiction.”—The Times

    A magnificent two-play epic, adapted from Tolstoy's novel and first staged by Shared Experience.
    One of the longest novels in Western literature, Tolstoy's War and Peace intertwines its epic account of Napoleon's invasion of Russia with the tale of three aristocratic families.
    Painted on a vast canvas of locations, characters and experiences, Helen Edmundson's stirring adaptation is an intricate saga of families, love and friendship against a backdrop of war.
    Helen Edmundson's earlier, one-part adaptation of War and Peace was staged by Shared Experience at the National Theatre in 1996.
    'triumphant... what a remarkable, unmissable achievement this is... Shared Experience's approach is so fluid and fresh it can only reinvigorate your appreciation of the book' - Telegraph
