The Ballad of Reading Gaol
The Ballad Of Reading Gaol

2nd November-»4th November

The Ballad of Reading Gaol was the poet and writer Oscar Wilde's final work. Proforça Theatre Company presents a visceral new staging of Oscar Wilde's haunting and evocative piece which explores oppression, censorship, and conformity in an ever more conservative society. This adaptation of the Ballad of Reading Gaol mixes the power and grotesque beauty of Wilde's words with the anger, scandal and salacious gossip of his criminal trial to tell the story of the punishment and despair experienced by prisoners at the turn of the century


16th November-»19th November

'Hommo' deals with the eroticism of masculinity. It follows two men as they prepare to kill a woman, and concurrently seduce another woman. The narratives run alongside each other as the men try to achieve their ideals of manhood. These extremities of violence and desire seek to expose the powerful undercurrents of sexuality in hyper-masculine relationships and interactions. The play confronts and criticises modern masculinity, presenting a naked vision of the hidden sexuality of gender
