Two young actors combine to perform two exhilarating solo performances to audiences this April.

Spoonface Steinberg with Evie Guttridge is Lee Hall’s (writer of Billy Elliot) extraordinary, award-winning play about faith, love and the meaning of life, and was first broadcast on Radio 4 in 1997 to unprecedented acclaim. A monologue by an autistic girl facing a terminal illness, it is at turns funny, intensely moving and profound.

The Ballad of Paragon Station with Hester Arden is a one woman storytelling show about 4 people who can’t sleep at night in in a city by the sea. "What keeps you awake at night Stacy Kay?"

Inspired by Dylan Thomas’s ‘Under Milk Wood’ and Nan Goldin's 'The Ballad of Sexual Dependency' the play explores the lives of four characters through original portraits created in Hull and London in May 2017.

A generation’s struggle for identity, intimacy and escape, the show is an intimate, semi-autobiographical visual treat with an ‘absorbing, energetic performance’ by RADA trained actress Hester Arden.
