PUB THEATRE FESTIVAL PROGRAMME
Deal Breaker - By Kate Reid
'Deal Breaker' is a comedic piece that chronicles a series of 'morning-after' conversations between Rosie and Sam. The audience never sees the night before: only the awkward small talk, or the pointed accusations, of the next morning. It begins with the first time they wake up and have coffee together; following the shifts in their relationship until Rosie wakes up and has coffee with a man who isn't Sam. The differences between the way that Rosie and Sam view their relationship – and view all relationships – challenge the stereotypical male/female dynamics of monogamy, jealousy and sex.
Rosie: Madeleine Schofield
Sam: Marco Young
Harry: Charlie Suff
Levels of Awfulness - By AJ Becker
This unique new project tells the story of a young man (Ruben, the only cast member) who is experiencing depression and low moods, through a monologue of poetry and rap, commentating on his thoughts through a Monday night.
Please Note: This is a screening of the performance.
Poetry in Motion - By Faux Fox Theatre
Poetry in Motion’
Big city dreams are not all they seem, in a play that may rhyme... from time to time…
Jack and Jess do their best to impress
As they try to survive
Their new London lives
Down from up North
Handling the back and forth-
Are they bound for
Or will they just make a
Using our poetic text and our expert sound design we create cinematic, charismatic and wonderfully dramatic experiences.
Jess: Bethany Fox
Jack: Oliver Burkill
Director: Django Holder

The Great Emptiness - By Isa Bonachera
The Great Emptiness is a multimedia stand up show about broken dreams and outer space, and a cautionary tale about being blindsided by a passion and the importance to stop and smell the roses.
You will not be able to hold back the laughs in this show that combines stand up comedy with wearable electronics and a planetarium projector.
Isa Bonachera is a BBC New Comedy Award finalist, a Leicester Square Comedian of the Year Finalist, a Sketch Off! runner-up, and a Phoenix Artist Club Cabaret Award top three.
