Sell a Door’s UK tour of Nigel Williams’ stage adaptation of Lord of the Flies sets the action in a school gymnasium.  Richard Evans’ design creates a versatile and evocative space, constructed of boxing equipment and wide steps, which the actors use to create the island in a well-crafted, physical opening scene.

In Jack Thorne’s one-man show Stacy, protagonist Rob takes the audience through the events of his last two days.  He tells an unflinchingly honest story, that swerves moment-to-moment from the outrageously funny, to the outright disturbing.

Rob’s tale is illustrated by a slideshow projected behind him. For the most part, this is made up of photographs of the people he mentions, but these are occasionally intercut with more sinister scenes – and various pornographic images too.
