A YOUNG THEATRE
In a world where no one plays, no
one questions and no one ever leaves,
four women work in an office high above
the city to anonymously return lost items. Under
the strict regime of the Vine where productivity is
encouraged, reproduction is monitored and citizens have
lost their ability to interact with each other everything runs like
clockwork – until one day a box of returned objects mysteriously
bounces back, undeliverable to its owner…
As the women embark on a mission that takes them out of the city and out of
their comfort zones, they unwittingly find themselves with the future of humanity in
their hands. Mixing magical visuals, movement, live song and clown, award winning Haste
Theatre create a darkly comic warning for the future.

to be producing another Tim Norton classic
as our Middle School production this year
(for years 9 and 10)
When High Court Judge Sir Horace Fewbanks is found
dead in his Hampstead home, Detective Inspector
Chippenfield from New Scotland Yard and his rookie
assistant Detective Sergeant Rolfe are on the case.
But will the suave private detective Montague Crewe
beat the Scotland Yard detectives in solving the case?
Whodunit? Is it the ex-con with a secret? Or
perhaps the exotic femme fatale who bears a
grudge? Then there is the smooth gentleman
cracksman, the spurned mistress or the grimy
urchin and let’s not forget the butler. Could it
really be the butler after all?
Parodying Agatha Christie and other
Golden Age crime stories you’ll enjoy
spotting all the tricks of the trade: The
plodding policeman and the arch
detective, the mysterious lady and
the giggling maids, the strangulated
accents and the sudden
appearance of convenient clues.
