Finding Joy The funny, fearless international sell-out mask production from the UK’s leading full mask company. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll find joy! Joy is 83 today: she’s feisty, loves to dance, and is losing her memory. Her grandson Danny is rebellious, bright and always getting into trouble. When Danny decides to look after Joy, they discover a shared playfulness and growing love. But is that enough to face the challenges ahead? Approaching the subject of dementia with humour and humanity, award-winning Finding Joy has performed to audiences across Europe and the UK, including a successful run at Assembly for Edinburgh Fringe 2016. Praised by press and public alike for its consummate full mask skills, engaging storytelling, physical dexterity and emotional insight, the company continues to involve and engage audiences across borders and boundaries with its wordless theatre.

The Thrill of Love

The Thrill of Love dramatises this infamous true story taking a closer look at the women behind the headlines. Why does their relationship end in murder? Why does she plead not guilty and offer no defence or show remorse? Who was she trying to protect?
