In 1993, in front of the world’s press, the leaders of Israel and Palestine shook hands on the lawn of the White House. Few watching would have guessed that the negotiations leading up to this iconic moment started secretly in a castle in the middle of a forest outside Oslo.

Oslo tells the true story of two maverick Norwegian diplomats who coordinated top secret talks and inspired seemingly impossible friendships. Their quiet heroics led to the groundbreaking Oslo Peace Accords.

Clare, A young woman at university happens upon an English translation of a play written by Hitler’s favourite playwright and it upsets her entire world view. She can’t help but see strong parallels in how the media was manipulated then, and now. Filled with anxiety that the world she lives in is not as noble as everyone is led to believe, she digs deeper, and deeper and deeper. Jumps down a rabbit hole that eventually isolates her from everyone she knows and loves. Her friends shun her, her parents demean her, her work fires her, her teachers expel her. If the truth is the truth then why won’t anyone listen? Her anger consumes her. Her thoughts turn extreme, she finds extremists to confide in… and they begin planning, something dangerous..

On Clare’s quest for truth, does she become her worst fear, or reveal her worst fear?

Craft Theatre, one of the top fringe theatre companies in London, brings you their newest piece, fast paced thriller ‘A Nazi Comparison’. Devised from ‘Shalateger’ by Hanns Johst (Poet Laurette to the Third Reich), contemporary political rhetoric, buried facts, intense drama, physical feats, and nuanced storytelling; to bring you one of the most controversial pieces to hit London since Edward Bond’s Saved…

Can you handle the truth?

Straight from the sold out run at Vault Festival where it was awarded Pick Of The Year, Skin a Cat is a bracingly candid account of sex and shame, gut-wrenching and side-splitting by turns, this is a truly alternative coming of age story about going all the way.

Every teenager thinks they’re the only one not having sex. But for Alana, it may well be true. She really wants to, but luck is clearly not on her side. Soon she can’t help wondering: Is it this tricky for everyone else? Because no one ever said it was going to be this complicated. ?

The show follows Alana on an awkward sexual odyssey with a kaleidoscope of off-kilter characters: from getting her first period at nine years old and freaking out her frantic mother, to watching bad porn at a house party with her best friend’s boyfriend, to a painful examination by an overly cheery gynaecologist – all in the pursuit of losing her virginity and finally becoming a woman, whatever that means…

In Transit is a voyage through the mind of Ella, who has lost all perception of where and who she is. Desperate to re-learn her past, she brings us into a world full of strange characters where she will unlock the secrets of her broken mind and confront the hardest moment of her life.

One hour. One actor. 27 characters. A highly physical one-woman show accompanied by original live music, In Transit is a tragicomical tale which captures moments of sheer beauty alongside nuggets of sweet and well-observed humour.
