THE SYLVIA EFFECT is written and directed by Peter Hinton. Using Sylvia Plath and her poems as inspiration, this play speaks to the emotional confessions of four characters simply named: The Daughter, The Poet, The Mother, and The Son.
"Sylvia Plath became famous, partly because of the manner of her death. But as often the case with artistic success it was also a case of timing. Writing against time. This relationship to time, makes her an ideal subject for the theatre. The challenge for me is to get past the tragic story to whatever core of experience or truth might wait on the other side.  Baby Grand Oct 27 - Nov 14 2021

THESE DEEDS - A thriller written and directed by Craig Walker, Starring Thom Marriot as Bram Stoker, Jacob James as Buffalo Bill Cody, and Richard Sheridan Willis as Henry Irving presented as a stage reading at the Tett Centre Rehearsal Hall. November 20th.

MERCY In an out-of-the-way dive bar, Jordan meets with Katherine to hire her to seduce Jordan's Husband. What unfolds is an explosive play about power and class, sex and betrayal, compromise and redemption. Exciting twists, multiple deceptions, this is a power game of cat-and-mouse. But who's the cat and who's the mouse? Mercy proves once again that our vulnerabilities not only define us, but occasionally save us. Baby Grand Feb 10 - Feb 27 2022
