“A woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction…”

Room is a brand new stage adaptation of this seminal feminist work, A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf, first presented as a series of lectures at the University of Cambridge in 1928, then published the following year.

Heather Alexander both adapts the piece and plays Virginia Woolf as the author gives an illuminating lecture on the gender disparity in fiction, a literary tradition dominated by men.

Adapted and Performed by Heather Alexander
Directed by Dominique Gerrard 


“Oft in danger, never afraid” This was Anna Brassey’s life motto as she travelled the world on a Victorian steam clipper. Her journal, ‘A Voyage in the Sunbeam’ made her experiences famous and established her as a popular Victorian writer. But who was the very private woman behind the public image? Puppetry, drama, song and film contribute to revealing how Anna and her crew survive as they negotiate prejudice and personal tragedy.

Anna Brassey: mother, explorer, curator, campaigner, pioneer – a woman ahead of her time.

Written and Directed by Heather Alexander

Kiss Off – A dark comedy directed by Tina Pellini.
Two women. A deadly diagnosis. Can humanity triumph? We recognise these women. A black comedy exploring a world where words poison and dreams are disordered echoes of a past that can’t be silenced.

Proxy – a psychological drama directed by Dominique Gerrard
Can a child survive the ultimate betrayal? Mothers nurture and children thrive – that’s what we believe, applaud and expect. An exploration of how abuse can operate in plain sight


Who is Shakespeare’s biggest bitch? Thespian pros rub shoulders with desperate amateurs, as an audition for the RAC Theatre Company is being held at a local school hall whilst a special lecture is scheduled for the students. Luvvies, school staff and students bitch and bicker, leaving the audience to decide who is the Bard’s biggest bitch.
Co-directed by Tina Pelini and Heather Alexander with devised input from Jane Brooman.
