Geraldine Hickey
With the support of a fridge door sporting the Hickey Family Ladder and a pot or two, Hickey regales her audience with tales about her efforts to beat her competition to the top of the ladder.

Mr Bleak and the Etryop
Mr O. Bleak is having a bad day, he is trying desperately to get to work on time to hand his report in and get a promotion.

B-File
Played for progressively darker comic effect until the comedy is so black that it’s no longer funny, the guards are nasty pieces of work, lewd, vindictive and increasingly violent.

Sam Simmons
Sam Simmons’ new show, teasingly titled The Sex and Science of Boredom, is a loony, loopy, nutty, nerdy winner.

The God of Hell
The production as a whole failed to come up with the necessary edginess to create the threat, and the comedy had nothing to play off

Hamlet
Prince Hamlet struggles to keep a sense of clear thinking and integrity in a world taken over by a murdering uncle, fratricide no less, and corruption.

Mark Butler
It’s Not Big, It’s Not Clever is stand-up comic Mark Butler’s foray into the wicked world of swearing.

Stephen K Amos
Amos delivers, joke after joke, centred on the themes of religion, hypocrisy and life’s pressures, all while he is essentially relaying his experiences of growing up in London
