Summary

Examining the universal and perennial topics of love, beauty, time and mortality, the 154 sonnets by William Shakespeare have been often quoted in the last 400 years since his death. The sonnets were first published in 1609, but there is hardly a language in the world into which they have not been translated.

    Nina Raine's Tiger Country is a hospital play that follows a tangle of doctors and nurses in a busy London hospital - from the award-winning author of Tribes.  
    Professionalism and prejudice, turbulent staff romances, ambition and failure collide in this swirling, action-packed drama about an overburdened health service that we all depend on and the dedicated individuals that keep it going.  
    'Tiger country' is where animal instinct stirs and an irrefutable eye opens. Where we make eye contact with the unknown.  
    Tiger Country was premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 2011 and, following its sell-out run, was revived there in 2014.  
    'a meticulously researched and totally absorbing work play' - Whatsonstage.com  
    'pacy, action-packed and, in places, touching. The sheer spectacle of the thing is so much more impressive than on the small screen' - Daily Mail

    A young couple prepare dinner - but something isn't right. In a city not so different from our own capital, a group of freedom fighters attempts to stand up to an Orwellian establishment in increasingly perilous circumstances. The story that unfolds brings into question relationships, identities and the nature of reality itself'  
    'Holcroft plunges us into an Orwellian near-future dystopia, where governmental aural surveillance is rife and, for political dissenters, everyday life is a carefully maintained lie. It's as theatrically playful as it is disturbing' - The Times  
    'not just a drama of political resistance set in some parallel British dystopia, but also a cute sendup of theatre acting and writing... keeps us guessing throughout' - Guardian  
    'startlingly imaginative... Clever, funny and disturbing, it's a blend of conceptual prank and dystopian satire' - Evening Standard

    A collection of wide-ranging and ambitious short plays reflecting the complexities of women and political power in the United Kingdom.  
    The four plays published here look back to the moments in history when women possessed - or achieved - power, and what they did with it.  
    The Milliner and the Weaver by Marie JonesHenrietta from Belfast and Elspeth from Dublin are unlikely comrades. The Suffragette movement binds them together, but as the question of Home Rule divides Ireland, will national politics tear them apart?  
    The Lioness by Rebecca LenkiewiczElizabeth I described herself as Queen, King and Prince, thriving in a male world, and saving the country from debt and wars. Self-proclaimed wife and mother to England, her virgin status was part of her myth, as she consistently refused marriage, citing herself as already taken. Here we see Elizabeth as both a woman and a leader as she encounters John Knox, the ultimate misogynist, and Essex, her favourite. Handbagged by Moira BuffiniFor over a decade Margaret Thatcher met the Queen for a weekly audience. With all her previous Prime Ministers the Queen enjoyed a fairly informal relationship, but with Mrs Thatcher, things were different. Handbagged speculates on the relationship between these two very powerful and private women.  
    Bloody Wimmin by Lucy KirkwoodThe protests at Greenham Common were a political landmark of the eighties. But how much did Greenham impact on the fight for nuclear disarmament, the progress of the women's movement and the culture of protest itself?
