DING!

It’s all around us. In our towns, our homes, our work, and our schools. We’re addicted. Your neighbours are on it. Your kids. Your parents. Our world leaders... It’s an epidemic of global proportions...
 
...social media!  
 
A collection of new monologues exploring our preoccupation with social media. Meet Instagram Influencers, Facebook Fanatics, and Twitter Teetotalists as they negotiate (or abstain from) living in an ever more complex online world.  
 
DING! was created in 2021 by an all fxmale team of writers, directors and actors, and was performed at the Rondo Theatre.

GET F*CKED

A cast of vibrant characters negotiate the pleasures and perils of dating as young women, each with her own story: some shocking, some moving and some hilarious, but all with one thing in common: there are no strings attached! 

Get F*cked is a collection of new monologues presenting the female perspective on the one-night-stand. Created collaboratively by an all-female team of writers, directors and actors in 2019, and performed as part of the Bath Fringe Festival in association with the Rondo Theatre.

"Performed with graphic detail and cheeky, well-timed wit... These varied and thought-provoking vignettes make for a fascinating evening" ★★★★

FRESHER

You’re young, single, and you can still drink your body weight in tequila without feeling like your head is going to explode the next day. You’re a Fresher.

It’s 2019 and it’s going to be the best year of Holly’s life: new friends, new freedom, new ways of drinking and dancing into glittery oblivion. Everything would be great, if only she could keep her nightmares at bay... 

 

A dark comedy about student life, toxic friendships and modern day club culture. Presented in 2019 in association with the Rondo Theatre.

"Faultless and arresting performances in this clever and evocative piece. Flipside are clearly a company to watch."  ★★★★
