‘Your appeal is that you look piss ordinary. You’re not ugly and you’re not a Kardashian. You look like a normal person. A normal person that makes porn ...’ Nicola Barker is in trouble. A video has been made, and she is the unwitting star. In a bid to stop the footage being used against her, Nicola makes a snap decision: to post it online herself. What started as a drunken night in a dirty club ends with a unique business opportunity for Nicola and her two sisters, changing the meaning of ‘amateur porn’ forever. A darkly comic new play from the writer/director team behind A First World Problem, this is a blistering study of our attitudes to porn, and the women who make it for themselves.

Meet Leah and Chris; raised on Harry Potter, New Labour and a belief that one day they would be as ‘special’ as their parents promised. But what happens when those dreams don’t become reality? All We Ever Wanted Was Everything is a three-act anthem set across three decades, from 1997’s Cool Britannia to 2007’s Broken Britain and 2017’s Brexit Britain. It’s about the world we inherited and the one we’re leaving behind. It’s a gig that tells a story of a million beating hearts and an asteroid with other plans.

Mit rücksichtslosen Methoden und einem eigenen Zweig des illegalen Glücksspiels baute sich die „Corporation“ ein Millionenimperium auf. T. J. English hat zahlreiche Insider der Corporation aufgespürt und über mehrere Jahrzehnte hinweg Material zusammengetragen, um die Geschichte dieser mächtigen, aber weitgehend unbekannten Organisation und ihres legendären Paten José Miguel Battle nachzuzeichnen.
