The deeply touching Oscar nominated Capernaum (Chaos) tells the story of Zain (Zain al-Rafeea), a Lebanese boy as he journeys from gutsy, streetwise child to hardened 12-year-old ‘adult’. Fleeing his negligent parents, he survives through his wits on the streets, where he meets Ethiopian migrant worker Rahil, who provides him with shelter and food in return for taking care of her baby son. After being jailed for committing a violent crime, Zain finally seeks justice and sues his parents for giving him life.

As the interrogation gets underway, Joan relives the dramatic events that shaped her life and her beliefs.

Athenaeum Masqueraders
The Vagina Monologues
Fri 21st.Feb.2020 to Sat 22nd Feb
Buy tickets
Adults £12

zoom poster
The Vagina Monologues has been translated into over 48 languages and performed in over 140 countries.  The play ran for over 10 years in the UK, France and Mexico.

A staggering number of the world’s most famous and talented women, including Maureen Lipman, Jerry Hall, Kate Winslett and Whoopi Goldberg, have  taken part in the show in New York, Los Angeles and London.

This hilariously witty, and often moving, collection of tales gives voice to a chorus of lusty, outrageous, poignant, brave and thoroughly human stories.

“Ensler breaks taboos by talking, talking and talking some more – stripping fear and shame from what she celebrates here.  It makes for quite a party…..funny, outrageous, emotionally affecting and occasionally angry. The Vagina Monologues confronts words to demystify and disarm them. In so doing, Ensler disarms the audience too” – Associated Press

“Probably the most important piece of political theatre this decade” – New York Times

AsOne theatre company present
The Mad Woman of Lyme
Sat 25th.Apr.2020

zoom poster


It is 1846, and the little town of Lyme Regis is battered by howling winter-gales. Dying and increasingly dependent on laudanum, Mary Anning reflects on her life. By challenging the status quo and making remarkable strides in a male dominated scientific world, her work threatens to disprove the very foundations she was raised on. Haunted by hallucinations of friends, enemies and even the creatures she spent her life hacking out of the living rock, Anning tries to make sense of her existence in her last moments. AsOne bring their signature blend of narrative, movement, music and striking visuals to tell this story about memory and coming to terms with the past. 

Written for AsOne by Peter John Cooper
Directed by Marta Vella

Music by Joe Butcher
Produced by AsOne theatre
Project managed by Vikesh Godhwani
