CAT

Set in New York City, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “Cats” follows five cats under the guidance of their spiritual leader as they deal with the ramifications of one of them becoming a religious sacrifice. How will the Cats deal with this alleyway-shaking event? Will Garbage Cat find love? Is the whole thing a metaphor for 19th century British social politics? One thing is for certain, this show is about Cats.

(To avoid paying for the rights, this has been written entirely from memory. I have never seen Cats.)

Devised by Jacinta Gregory and Declan Maher
With Bruno Dubosarsky, Emily Greenberg, Jacob Henegan, Jack Savage, Juliet Rae Timmerman, Sam Pearson and Tim McNaught

GUN

In 1986, the seminal film Top Gun opened in cinemas to universal acclaim, and saw a 500% increase in the recruitment of naval aviators. It is a great crime that this dogfight-soap opera has gone without a stage adaptation… until NOW! Join Maverick, Goose, Charlie and the lads for a thrilling and artistic adaptation of the film exclusively for the cellar theatre!
