Queen of Hearts
William Shakespeare disappeared from his hometown of Stratford when he was eighteen. No one knows why he left his wife and children, though historians have a number of theories. One tells of Will poaching a deer on Sir Thomas Lucy’s land – a serious offence that could have seen Will in jail or executed. How he made his way to London and got started in theatre is also a mystery. This play takes an imaginative look at what might have happened to young William Shakespeare.

Case of the Dangerfield Diamond

In classic film noir, a tough-talking private eye is hired by a beautiful woman to solve a murder. Often narrating his/her thoughts to the audience, the detective find their way through a shadowy maze of sinister characters, each of whom could have committed the crime. In this noir parody, Nikki Noir has her hands full as she tries to solve a big case that just might put her name on the map.
