Carlos Dengler takes us on a journey of origins in his exciting monologue, Homo Sapiens Interruptus.

The monologue interweaves Carlos' musical journey with a mystical evocation of human origins. Intelligent and heartfelt, Carlos' story explores how youthful obsession often, and heartbreakingly, shatters against ineluctable currents of change and adulthood.

But the pet – a terribly obese cat with several problems – provides Cerna with a new set of challenges he must overcome if he is to regain his sanity.

Raw, edgy and revealing, Sex Around The City: The Walking Tour of Shame is an experience like no other. Set on the streets, in the bars and the subways of Manhattan's Midtown East, join tour guide and 'sex-sighter', Joanie, on a gritty adventure all about sex – both good and bad. And along the way meet some very gutsy women, daring enough to tell their stories.
Please note this is not a tour for the faint-hearted, the squeamish or the prudish. Sex Around The City: The Walking Tour of Shame is a darkly comic, provocative and very honest new play, written and performed by Laura Hooper, dealing with sexual stigma, prejudice and courage over adversity.

The audience will not only be the subject of the show, but will also lend a hand in running sound, lights and set changes while guiding the show's direction. It both spoofs and celebrates what we know to be a one-person show.
The story of Noah's dysfunctional relationship with his Dad, and how they learned to love one another despite it all.
