Mean and marvellous, this Neil LaBute play has more surprises than a case full of Cracker Jack boxes, and every one is neatly tucked away behind a candy coating of romantic comedy.
Set in a small university town in the American Midwest, it centres on the lives of four young students who become emotionally and romantically involved with each other.

Jessica Swale's debut play is set in Girton College, Cambridge, in 1898, and centres on the campaign to allow female students to graduate. Although established in their own college, attending the male students’ lectures, and doing the same assignments and exams as their male contemporaries – they just weren’t given a degree at the end of it. A moving, comical and eye-opening story of four young women fighting for education and self-determination against the larger backdrop of women's suffrage.
Paul and Corie Bratter are newlyweds in every sense of the word. After a six day honeymoon, they get a surprise visit from Corie's loopy mother and decide to play matchmaker during a dinner with their neighbor-in-the-attic Velasco, where everything that can go wrong, does.
In a busy call centre, the four female employees of Aphrodite, a sex toy manufacturer, take telephone orders for Teasey Maids, Titivators and rotating pearl g-strings. Beneath the cheerful customer service and easy banter, however, these very different women nurse their own desires and disappointments. Sex Cells is a very funny, poignant play about motherhood, friendship, love and loss.
It’s the roaring twenties – an era of bootleg liquor, red hot jazz and hedonistic pleasures. Jay Gatsby has invited you to one of his infamous parties and that's not an invite you want to turn down.
