A Nazi Comparison

Clare, A young woman at university happens upon an English translation of a play written by Hitlers favourite playwright and it upsets her entire world view. She cant 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 wont anyone listen? Her anger consumes her. Her thoughts turn extreme, she finds extremists to confide in... and they begin planning, something dangerous..

On Clares 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, faced 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 Bonds Saved

Can you handle the truth?

Three Mothers
By Matilda Velevitch

Three Women, Two Children, One Story
A compelling and uplifting story about motherhood, homeland and
the power of love, told with insight, warmth, and humour.

When Khadys husband dies, she is forced to sell his goats. Sending her eldest son away from Senegal across desert and sea to Europe, in the hope that he will find a better life, she plunges her entire family into uncertainty.

When Giselas life in England is turned upside down, she goes home to Bavaria seeking comfort and familiarity. But her attempts to assist the steady flow of refugees arriving in her childhood village soon awaken memories from her own past.

Erika reveals the truth about the journey made on foot with her baby daughter after being expelled from Sudetenland in 1945.

The bold choices made by these three mothers are brought together as one compelling narrative in this play.

A play so full of love and hope that it left me feeling better about the world.

Christmas Farce

by Shaun Kitchener

Backstage at a regional theatre, it's the opening night of a revamped Nativity and the atmosphere among the hapless cast and crew is far from festive. But as the curtain rises and the show spirals quickly out of control, they're going to have to think fast to stop it becoming a complete turkey...

Written by BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy winner Shaun Kitchener (Hollyoaks, Positive, 5 6 7 8: A Steps Musical) and produced by the company behind Briefs, Christmas Farce is a hilarious alternative to panto; packed with laughs from beginning to end.

Doodle – a new comedy musical
By Andy Street & Jonathan Kydd

DOODLE! An all-singing all-dancing new comedy musical.

It is the year 1940. Britain is at war with Nazi Germany. Barnes Wallis the eventual inventor of the world famous Bouncing Bomb as featured in the film the Dam Busters (you know the black and white one where the bomb bounces into the dams?) is kidnapped by the Nazis to build them a Bouncing Submarine.

No one believes the threat is serious (A Bouncing submarine? Ha ha ha ha ha ha! Absurd!) and Barnes Wallis has so far only invented a Talking Robot called Trevor who is rubbish, so nobody, especially the King and Winston Churchill, believes Walliss kidnapping should be taken seriously.

Consequently a Z team of not very good misfits including a Sherlock Holmes impersonator, is recruited to go on a secret mission to discover whether the threat is real or just a ridiculous joke. Once they're on their way it's discovered that the threat is so serious, it has the potential to lose Britain the war. (CUE HUGE DOOM LADEN CHORD)

21 songs including a really impressive one where the cast sound like a Spitfire plane. David Niven and Charles Bronson are in it. Written by American Idols Andy Street and actor Jonathan Kydd. Whose father was actor Sam Kydd. Sams in it too.
