Page One Theatre is a new company of collaborators making work for children. The idea for The Bridge began after a successful application to the Unicorn Theatre’s Emerge programme in September 2011, where we spent a week exploring initial ideas for this piece.
The story of The Bridge follows the adventures of Lucien, a lonely city rat who watches the pigeons from under Waterloo Bridge and wishes he could join them in the sky. One day he spots the most beautiful pigeon and follows her into the lights of the big city…

BOY IN A DRESS

"An Icon in the making... bracingly glacial and sharp as a broken nail "
* * * * Time Out Critics’ Choice
Follow third-gendered, fallen Catholic, ex-fashion model La JohnJoseph on a journey from the council estates of Bootle to the strip clubs of New York, in a tale told through song, vaudeville, proselytising, striptease and postmodern philosophy. Raucously political and accidentally profound, this is her frank and almost charming autobiography.

Independent Productions is proud to present create a rare production of BLACK BATTLES WITH DOGS (director Alexander Zeldin) at the Southwark Playhouse theatre in London.
BLACK BATTLES WITH DOGS (1979) by French playwright Bernard-Marie Koltes is the story of three people isolated in a part of the world that is foreign to them. They are two men working on French construction site in Africa and a young woman who comes to witness a fireworks display and to get married to the old manager of the site. The fourth character is an African man who comes to ask for the body of his brother, killed recently in mysterious circumstances while working on the construction site.
This is a play where people are trapped and alone and where racism, hatred, fear, desire and envy take hold of them turn by turn.
"a pioneer of a wholly new style of dramatic writing"
The Times on Bernard-Marie Koltes
