The Little Pony (in English)

The Little Pony (in English)

Daniel and Irene try to confront the brutal school bullying that Timmy is subjected to. A school that protects its bullies and a couple that tries to do the best for their child will witness how Timmy escapes to an imaginary universe to protect himself from the insufferable reality.


‘I once read the news on Gryson Bruce, a 9-year-old boy from North Carolina, who in 2014 suffered several physical and verbal attacks as a result of carrying a My Little Pony backpack. He was forbidden to bring the backpack to the school and I couldn’t believe it. What is better,  to follow the views of the majority or to defend your own child’s freedom of choice?’ – Paco Bezerra.

False Alarm (Out of the Wings Festival)

False Alarm (Out of the Wings Festival)

By: Virgilio Piñera


Translated by: Kate Eaton


A false alarm my friend. A false alarm.


A Murderer is brought before the Judge and is made to face the Widow of the man he has killed. The Judge is vituperative and the Widow demanding of vengeance then suddenly both Judge and Widow change their clothes and their demeanour and seem to forget the Murderer’s very existence. They torture him with their nonsensical non-sequiturs and their penchant for dancing to the strains of the Blue Danube. The Murderer is reduced to begging the Judge and the Widow to remember their roles and to try him for the crime he has committed.

Reality - The Final (Out of the Wings Festival)

Reality - The Final (Out of the Wings Festival)

By: Michelle Ferreira


Translated by:Susannah Finzi


The afternoon room is very depressing. It’s not enough to be fucked up, you have to be fucked up and listen to Kenny G. It’s a lot to contend with.


In Reality – The Final we’re witnessing the last weeks in the life of a once-celebrated soap opera actress with cancer who is persuaded to participate in a reality TV show. The characters involved are variously psychopathic, self-absorbed, foul-mouthed and narcissistic and they inhabit a voyeuristic spectacle-addicted world which produces “extreme entertainment” such as this reality show where the last to die wins and where we are the studio audience. However in confronting the crises of fractured family relationships, drugs, illness, financial ruin and imminent death these people show themselves to be all too human and at times even sympathetic. The writing demonstrates an originality and such an ability to “tell it the way it is” that a subject that might appear morbid is as comic as it is profound. Reality – The Final is a comedy which obliges us to reflect on life – and its limits.

The Widow of Apablaza (Out of the Wings Festival)

The Widow of Apablaza (Out of the Wings Festival)

By: Germán Luco Cruchaga


Translated by:William Gregory


Here it’s what I want that matters… I’m my own woman. I’m the one who brought you up and that counts for something! From now on, you’ll take my dead husband’s place…! It’s all yours: the land, the money… And the widow.


In Chile’s rural south at the turn of the 20th Century, a prosperous but lonely farm-owning widow turns her land, business and livelihood over to her late husband’s adopted son, marrying him and relinquishing her power in exchange for his companionship. Before too long his attentions stray to Celinda, the widow’s young niece recently arrived from the city, leaving the widow trapped in a loveless marriage and stripped of the influence and autonomy she once enjoyed.


A classic of Chilean theatre, performed in English in its 90th anniversary year.

Masters of the Universe (Out of the Wings Festival)

Masters of the Universe (Out of the Wings Festival)

By: Almudena Ramírez-Pantanella


Translated by:Sarah Maitland


You know what I wanted to be when I was little? Master of the universe. I wanted to be master of the universe.


Master of the universe? Who’s bullshitting now?


Two lost souls, separated by a train platform. A shocking event that will change one commuter’s life forever. Miguel, a confident young intern in a flashy suit, seems to have it all. He’s got a cushy job waiting for him when he finishes his placement in the city, and he has a nice middle class family egging him on.

For the moment, he’s the master of all he surveys. But what happens when events take a course of their own, and the very things you thought were sure in life don’t make sense anymore? What happens when your only hope is hopelessness and the only thing you can depend on is yourself? What happens when the masters of the universe find they no longer have any power?

Keep on Walking Federico

Keep on Walking Federico

UK Premiere


★★★★ “Lockyer has one hell of a story and he tells it rivetingly well” The Times


Keep on Walking Federico is a funny and moving tale of a journey across borders – a journey through the midnight of the soul…


It is the brand new play by the writer and performer of Living with the Lights On, an ATC production that has been acclaimed by critics and by audiences from Bristol to Barcelona (including two sell-out runs at the Young Vic).


“And in that moment I realised… things had got a bit grim.”


Mark is struggling. Work, relationships, going grey. Add to that, he can’t even get his head around Snapchat. Then a letter arrives. Mark has no choice but to leave…with no idea if he’ll ever come back.


The play tells the story of Mark’s journey into an uncertain future. Being Mark, he decides he should experience it in sunny Spain. But there, he encounters incidents and people that keep reminding him that living in the present and looking forward to the future doesn’t always mean escaping from the past. With time to contemplate and as his thoughts turn to his relationships with his parents, his upbringing and the experiences that have brought him to this point, Mark’s challenge is to find the ability to move forward whilst acknowledging what is behind him.
