The trials and tribulations a 20-something female teacher faces in a London based Sixth Form College.

Bad Teacher is a dark comedy about the trials and tribulations a 20-something female teacher faces in a London based Sixth Form College. This one-woman show, inspired by real life experiences, will confront audiences with eye opening truths about gender politics, mental health, and the outrageous expectations that our current educational system sets for students and teachers alike. Evie, the titular teacher, takes audiences through each lesson, such as "Be Bold, Be Braless" and “Work Hard, Play Harder”, culminating in Parents Evening. The groundbreaking script is unabashedly funny, unflinchingly realistic, and unashamedly female.

Gulliver

He tells tales of lands undiscovered and creatures unheard of, but is he really the same man who disappeared so long ago? They say travel broadens the mind... but how far before it breaks?

Murder Ballads

Explosive gig-theatre meets dark comedy cabaret as four actor-musicians invite you to O'Malley's Bar in the town of Millhaven, 1882, in the wildest part of the old Wild West. Weaving Cave's outrageous songs into a darkly comic narrative, the performers take you through stories of betrayals, bar brawls, and blood baths. Expect an hour of laughter, horror, live music and one of the highest death counts you'll ever experience at the Fringe!
