Them? is about finding your place in the world. Mir realises they are Genderqueer whilst working in a binary, tick-box and oppressive Job Centre. This play explores identity and mental health against the backdrop of a patriarchy disguised as a matriarchy. In a reality where computers talk, virtual life and real life are blurred, we peer into Mir’s mind and lived experience.

Working with a group of 16-25 yr olds & an experienced team of Queer Creatives in April - June this year, we began to develop a new show about Gender Identity, set in a Job Centre.

The Ladies Loo Chronicles

By Flora London

The Ladies Loo Chronicles is a fast paced, fabulous and daring situational comedy set in the ladies toilets. Best friends, Megan and Lydia are on a night out when Megan starts her period. Dressed for dancing, not for sitting on the loo, they find themselves stuck in the bathroom with no change to buy a much-needed tampon. Join us round the u-bend to find out if they will ever convince tough toilet attendant Winnie to free them from the bog?

★★★★ “Anyone who dares to say that girls aren’t funny, clearly hasn’t seen this show” Everything Theatre

★★★★ “The play sensitively deals with serious issues”

The British Theatre Guide
★★★★ “Taboo busting romp” South London Press

★★★★ The Derek Awards

★★★★ "I AM WOMAN HEAR ME ROAR" Within Her Words

The Ladies Loo Chronicles debuted at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 at theSpaceUK, Surgeon’s Hall and Fife Theatre on Northbridge. Kathy Lette, Australian Comedian, said it was 'warm, witty, pithy, poignant'. We teamed up with Fringe Biscuit to review 5 toilets in Edinburgh for a bit of a laugh, were named one of the top feminist shows on at the Fringe on Lita Doolan's podcast and we had a feature piece written by Ed Fringe Review. Not to mention our wonderful partnerships with ALRA and The YES YES Company, who sell organic intimacy products (basically lube!) We also performed at The Kings Head in July 2019.

Conversations with Ed

By Meg Pickup

"We are just a cluster of stardust particles that have formed for a brief amount of time before we dissipate into something else.”

Food. Love. Disorder.

Nature lover, Ellie and lifestyle guru, Ed have been friends for a long time. When Ellie meets down-to-earth Zahara, things change. Mercury is well and truly in retrograde as Ellie battles through the clusterfuck that is life. A play seeping with jealousy, control and power, Pickup’s debut play explores every kind of relationship. Relationship with food, romantic relationships and relationship with self.

★★★★ "Powerful, well performed and deeply sad"

London Pub Theatres

Evangeline and Meg met via a new writing opportunity with Colour & Light Productions at TheatreN16. Conversations with Ed had a successful run at The Bread & Roses Theatre in July 2019.

Original Cast: Meg Pickup, Dalila McFarlane-Martin and Joanna Clarke
