Following in the footsteps of the success of their previous adaptations of Our Man in Havana (2017) and Woyzeck (2018), Young Pleasance graduates, Spies Like Us, present their first original work fresh from an acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe. In a city that feels less and less like home, ever-rising house prices propel Sabrina into a moral dilemma, forcing her to sacrifice her principles for a chance to leap onto the property ladder. Murder of the Dancefloor explores the consequences of a hopeless job market clashing with extortionate housing costs in an increasingly farcical and playfully physical show about the drive for financial security. Spies Like Us will this year be supported by New Diorama Theatre as one of their Graduate Emerging Companies.

Every so often, a production comes around that leaves you pondering about the show when it is done. For me, it's usually a jarring show that asks the audience to think about how we see things in the world, and if the way we see things can be adjusted or not. Des Moines Metro Opera's (DMMO) production of 'WOZZECK' was a production that will leave you thinking about a topic that is very prevalent in our world today, mental illness. This production deals with a character that is dealing with insanity. What this production does well is having the idea of insanity prevalent in multiple aspects of the show.
