               COVID-19 Advice (issued 18 March 2020)

Given the current circumstances we've had a high number of groups make contact with us, and, due to the amount of effort put into rehearsals/marketing etc, most of them have so far wanted to re-schedule rather than cancel. We're not charging fees for any deferral of productions.

If you decide to postpone your production you probably won't know the dates for later in the year, or next year, yet, but please advise us nevertheless, and we'll issue a new temporary licence to show a date range of 2-3 months which you can then refine with us when the actual production dates are known.

Regarding cancellation: our administration fee will not be levied where you are forced to cancel your production.

Branching Out

    by Keith Trezise


       

Synopsis

Three intrepid eco-warriors arrive at the site of a condemned tree with the sole purpose of saving it from the road developer’s axe. However, each has his or her own private reason for being there.

Rachel, the self-styled leader of the group, is there for the glory, whilst Derek, a claustrophobic hypochondriac who suffers from vertigo, is there because he is infatuated with Rachel.

Pauline, a true tree-hugger, is there simply because she cares about the tree… as long as they save it by Saturday as she has to attend a wedding!

This play has received four awards from various festivals since 2008. Because there is no set needed, this play is an ideal addition to a double bill. It could be performed outdoors in a real tree, but when performed indoors it is not necessary to use a set as the actors can produce the illusion of being up a tree through mime, and a green leaf gobo cab used to good effect to assist in the illusion.
