Doughnuts and Ice Cream by Tazmin Murray
Full of laughter, play and inside jokes, three women take us on an exhilarating journey through poetic conversations about love and success – however, beyond surface level conversations and smiling faces, there is something much deeper taking place in their lives. As Noelle goes through a lengthy journey to diagnosis for endometriosis, we see it affect her dynamic with best friends Gabby and Jazz, as well as her relationship with partner Andre as they navigate difficult conversations around fertility. Their friendship quickly becomes more than a place to thrive but also a safe place to break as they piece back together her faith and view of womanhood. Tazmin Murray is an international award-winning actor who made her writing debut with Doughnuts and Ice Cream.
Resonate by Ntonga Mwanza
Monday 20 - Friday 31 May
Resonate is performed by the brilliant Ntonga Mwanza. It's a solo dance-theatre show following Jacob, a young man trying to turn away from his life as a hard-living and loving party animal, through a new found faith and spirituality. However, constant interruptions from his friends and ex-girlfriends leads to a crisis of confidence, and a breakdown in his mental state due to him being torn between two extremes. Resonate plunges into the mania of lust, faith and sexual-addiction-affliction, merging physical theatre, hip hop dance, clowning, mime and spoken word. A pulsating lyrical journey into the soul of a young man.
