Directed by Terry Frawley

A Tomb With A View is set in a sinister, old library presided over by a portrait of a grim faced, mad-eyed old man. There, a dusty lawyer reads a will (involving a vast fortune) to an equally sinister family ...

By the Third Act, there are more corpses than live members left in the cast. All is revealed as the plot twists and turns to its surprising conclusion.


Directed by Steve Pearton

In the last decade of the twentieth century a young woman in nineteenth century clothing is found floating on an iceberg in the middle of the North Atlantic. When rescued she says only one word: Titanic. A mysterious man named John has arranged to interrogate her in order to break her story and get her to confess she’s a fake. His only clue: an enigmatic reference to an unknown place called “Scotland Road...”

Hacienda del Toro

Directed by Sharyn Donoghue

& Royce Leivesley

Think, three amigos, hot chilli, salsa, tequila, burritos, enchiladas. Hidden treasure, bad Spanish accents, culture clashes, misunderstandings and much mirth as everyone comes together to have a good time at the Hacienda del Toro.


The tourists arrive. The Hacienda staff are learning English and are amazed at the antics of the Gringos.......  Macarena, Mexican hat dance, Mexican jumping beans, Mock Bull Fight, Pinnata, Siesta, La Cucaracha, you might find them all here at  Hacienda el Toro....

Emerald City

Directed by Pat O'Callaghan

A fast-moving, wisecracking commentary on contemporary urban mores and morals, and the rivalries and passions to be encountered on the road to success. Married couple Colin, a screenwriter, and Kate, a publisher, move to the 'Emerald City', where fame and fortune are there for the taking, but surprises are in store for them both.Sharp-edged, satirical and accusatory, Emerald City lays into the materialism of the 1980s with a razor-sharp wit

Member for
Lizard Falls

Directed by Terry Frawley

Clarrie Bullock is currently the Member for Lizard Falls and another election is coming up. He has quite a problem on his hands, trying to please those both for and against a new road through his electorate and, at the same time, looking out for his own interests. Clarrie makes lots of promises – to his wife, Pearl; to greenie activist, Rose, (who is not above a little blackmail); and to business and political connections with whom he exchanges favours. He can’t keep all his promises but which ones can he afford to break?

Hotel Sorrento

Directed by Ed Bone

Hilary lives in seaside Sorrento with her father and sixteen-year-old son; Pippa is visiting from New York and Meg returns from England with her English husband.

Three sisters, reunited after ten years in different worlds, again feel the constraints of family life. It is Meg's semi-autobiographical novel, recently short-listed for the Booker prize, which overshadows their homecoming.

Up Pompeii

As Lurcio attempts to deliver his prologue and begin proceedings, he’s quickly caught up in the myriad of sexual liaisons in all quarters of his master’s house. Why does Ludicrus not leave for the Senate meeting in Rome? Why does his wife return so quickly from the country? Who will take care of the escaped slave girl, Voluptua, and will Nausius’s love poetry improve? Whilst growing chaos ensues, an increasing rumbling is heard in the distance – what could that possibly be? A riot from start to finish.
