In 1953 Henry Molaison emerges from experimental brain surgery without any recollection of the last two years of his life, or the ability to form new memories. In 2009 Patient H.M.’s brain is dissected live on the internet to a global audience of 400,000 people, cut into carefully preserved slices; manuscripts of tissue like the pages of a book. Inspired by the world’s most important neuroscientific case study, 2401 Objects tells the remarkable story of a man who could no longer remember, but who has proven impossible to forget. “I defy anyone not be drawn into this deeply moving examination of life, death and memory” The Telegraph.

In a world of spin, Blackberrys and ‘sexed up’ dossiers, the PM is staring disaster in the face.

Will Jim Hacker and his team of advisers be able to rescue the country from the edge? Recommended for over 16s. “Side splitting” The Express.

In A HAmpSHIRE STABlE, A YOUTH BlInDS SIX HORSES WITH A mETAl SpIKE. Convicted of this appalling crime, seventeen-year-old Alan Strang is sent to a secure psychiatric hospital. Martin Dysart, the child psychiatrist assigned to him, begins to probe Alan’s past in an attempt to understand his motives. Initially the boy is silent and uncooperative, but as Dysart digs deeper, he begins to win Alan’s trust and the truth gradually emerges. Finally, as Alan struggles to be free of his demons, he must relive the events of that terrible night. Inspired by a true story, Peter Shaffer's unique psychological thriller explores the complex relationships between worship, myth and sexuality. Equus contains strong language, adult themes and nudity. “…taut, flawless and compelling…” The Stage. “…astonishing theatricality...beautifully lit and staged…” Hexham Courant. “…quite simply, this is the kind of show for which awards are given…” WhatsOnStage.

With cameo appearances from JFK, Frank Sinatra, Joe DiMaggio and a host of other influential characters to tell the tragic and scandalous story of the original blonde bombshell from Hollywood – ‘a place where they’ll pay you 1000 dollars for a kiss and 50 cents for your soul…’

Originally written for radio in 1972,Tom Stoppard's ‘Artist Descending a Staircase’ uses sound to tell the story of three elderly avant-garde artists who have co-existed for over fifty years. Stoppard explores the meaning and purpose of art using his renowned wit and mastery of the English language to create a timeless comedy. Delirious theatre's debut production of a British classic promises to entertain audiences whilst provoking thought on what constitutes art. [Student Theatre]

The play depicts the late summer days when love briefly seems possible for three of the mundy sisters and the family welcomes home the frail elder brother, who has returned from a life as a missionary in Africa. However, as the summer ends, the family foresees the sadness and economic privations under which they will suffer as all hopes fade. [Amateur Theatre]
