Two 15-year-olds in love who lived every moment, including their last, online
Composer Philip Venables and director Ted Huffman − the duo behind the award-winning 4. 48Psychosis – examine the real-life tragedy of Russian runaways Denis Muravyov and Katya Vlasova. Dubbed a modern-day Romeo and Juliet, they broadcast their forbidden final days together on social media. And rightly or wrongly, the public clicked, watched and responded.
Splicing verbatim text, video, music and theatre, Denis & Katya explores how storiesare shaped and shared in our age of trolls, conspiracy theories, fake news, and 24/7 digital connection.

Think you know Fagin? Think again.
Fagin? -written and directed by Simon Downing.
“All three actors in the roles of Fagin (Keith Hill), Bill (Giles Shenton) and Nancy (Georgia Butt) deliver impeccable performances. In the centre of it all, the audience is captivated by Fagin’s diverse, manipulative and complex character.”
The Reviews Hub
“It is apowerful piece of work….it deserves to become an eventual classic.
The set is simple, the themes (of love, greed, deception, betrayal, regret and retribution) universal, the subtle interplay between the three characters intense and the background (Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist) so familiar that this small masterpiece could well be a theatrical staple.” You would be a fool to yourself to miss it.”
