Press Night: Thursday 4 September at 7.45pm

Georgie is 30 with dirty secrets. She drinks in her bedroom and hides from the sun. Leah is 15 with teenage dreams. She practices her cum face and Veets. A lot. All-meat, all-sex, all vulnerable, all-powerful. There's a first time for everything... Isn't there?

STARLORE FOR BEGINNERS AND OTHER PLAYS by Samantha Ellis

Directed by Jim Russell

Tuesday to Saturday at 9pm, Sunday at 7pm

A series of short plays by Samantha Ellis, the acclaimed playwright behind Cling To Me Like Ivy (Birmingham Rep) and best-selling author of How To Be A Heroine (Chatto & Windus). Can a former lover upend your new relationship from beyond the grave? What do you do if you're accused of witchcraft? And how do you cope when your own brain turns against you? Ellis explores these and other questions in these quirky, fascinating and personal stories.

30 September - 25 October

Benet Catty Productions and Theatre503 Present

BLIND EYE by Susannah Finzi

Directed by Benet Catty

Tuesday to Saturday at 7.45pm, Sunday at 5pm

1982. Three people on the brink; a lawyer with a high profile case, an old man with a mission, a peace negotiator with a secret. Their lives are about to change. None as they intend.

Blind Eye is a compelling story of international law and personal morality, and how past bad acts infect present day relationships. Susannah Finzi's ambitious debut play receives a fluid and spectacular production from Benet Catty.

28 October - 1 November

Theatre503 and CAL Arts Present

RED LIKE EMBERS: Contemporary Voices From Brazil

Tuesday to Saturday at 7.45pm, Sunday at 5pm

Brazil: the home of the carnival and a hot-bed of political protest, a land of natural beauty with a history of brutality. Theatre503 and CAL Arts present a festival of plays, talks and performance from the sensual heartland of Latin America. Erupting from a diverse cultural heritage, these vibrant and often violent stories, a blend of religion, sexuality and politics will showcase the work of many playwrights, both new and established, that have never been seen outside of their homeland.

4 - 29 November

Theatre503 and Kuleshov Present

CANS by Stuart Slade

Directed by Dan Pick

Tuesday to Saturday at 7.45pm, Sunday at 5pm

Jen's Dad is dead. To make matters worse, Uncle Len has made it his mission to help her get over it. Hiding from a very hostile world in a very shitty garage, Len and Jen down cider, drown mice, talk crap, mend cats, share painful secrets, tell appalling jokes, and try to work out whether either of them has any kind of future whatsoever.

As recently seen at a Theatre503 Futures performance, Cans has been developed with Theatre503 over the past few months.

2 - December - 10 January

Sleeping Trees and Theatre503 Present

CINDERELLA AND THE BEANSTALK

Directed by Tom Attenborough

Various Times, check website for details

Cinderella and the Beanstalk - a festive treat for those who love a Christmas panto and for those who don't - a glorious cocktail of your favourite pantomimes! Follow Cinderella on a perilous adventure as the scheming Rumple Stiltskin blackmails the would-be princess into retrieving the coveted golden eggs from the top of the beanstalk. Three performers recreate every character you'd expect to find in a Pantomime, as well as some you might not... singing, dancing and fighting their way through ninety minutes of panto pandemonium.

THEATRE503 IN THE WEST END

3 September - 4 October

Theatre503 and Tara Finney Productions Present

LAND OF OUR FATHERS by Chris Urch

Trafalgar Studios 2

Press Night: Monday 8 September at 7pm

2013's critically acclaimed new play LAND OF OUR FATHERS by Chris Urch transfers to the Trafalgar Studios 2.

3rd May 1979, South Wales. Thatcher is counting her votes, Sid Vicious is turning in his grave and six Welsh miners are trapped down a coalmine. Over the span of two weeks everything these men believe in and everything they know will have changed. Chris Urch's debut play is packed full of blistering dark comedy and a generation of lost voices.
