A Night at the Dogs

release date: Sep 04, 2014
A Night at the Dogs
This Dog, our girl, they're not expecting her to win. We'll never have that secret weapon again so just enjoy it. The minute she crosses that line first, it'll be like the whole world has changed for us... you might want to think about that a little before it happens. On the evening of their first race, five men await the arrival of a dog that they hope will change their fortunes. But before they've even left for the track, a violent situation erupts and now the night of their dreams, along with the fate of an innocent man, hangs in the balance. A Night at the Dogs, winner of the Verity Bargate Award 2004, premiered at the Soho Theatre, London, in April 2005.

The Five Wives of Maurice Pinder
No family photograph can truly prepare Rowena for her first meeting with Maurice's three wives and teenage son. Young, nervous and extremely pregnant, she is warmly welcomed into the fold but her presence soon has the family questioning the nature of their delicate balance. Then Fay brings home a one-night stand, with far-reaching consequences for them all.

The Observer

release date: Sep 04, 2014
The Observer
An international group of observers arrives in a West African country to oversee and rubber stamp its first democratic election. New voters queue in their thousands, but a senior member of the observation team finds herself both horrified by the president's suppressive tactics and, for once, in a position to do something about it. Yet as violence on the streets escalates and the country enters freefall, an increasingly angry young translator forces this well-meaning outsider to confront the impact of her intervention. People walked for six miles to vote. I've been doing this job for twelve years and I'm telling you that for the first time in what feels like a lifetime we can do something real here. The Observer by Matt Charman premiered at the National Theatre, London, in May 2009.

Greenland

release date: Feb 17, 2011
Greenland
What on earth is happening to our planet? And who knows what to do? Certainties are few: every living thing is related to every other living thing; our actions have consequences; change is continual and inevitable. The National Theatre asked four of the country's most exciting writers to investigate. The team spent six months interviewing key individuals from the worlds of science, politics, business and philosophy to create a fast-paced and provocative new play. Greenland premiered at the National Theatre, London, in February 2011.
