Mr & Mystery (2021) 

Welcome to the wedding reception of Jake and Natalie! Two people in love celebrating the start of the rest of their lives, surrounded by friends and family. Mix in high emotion, cheesy music, cake, and too much alcohol - What could possibly go wrong?

Except this isn’t like any normal wedding reception... The bride and groom are nowhere to be seen! Where are Natalie and Jake? Are they stuck in traffic? Did they get lost? Or is someone at the reception the cause of their disappearance?

Meet the suspects, learn their motives, and CHOOSE who you think is to blame for the happy couple not arriving. Oh - and keep away from the buffet. There's a rumor going around that it's POISONED!

Between the Wi and the Fi (2019) 

From mobile phones to virtual personal assistants, from drones to androids - technology is everywhere in our modern lives.

At the same time, loneliness is a growing epidemic effecting everyone in society.

This inclusive play with music explores the impact of both on a busy modern family.

Written, devised and performed by a cast aged 11 – 94!

The Originators (2017) 

The Originators are immortal beings. Their role, over millions of years, is to create humans, populating worlds within parallel universes. They decide to make an unprecedented visit to observe their creations.

Landing in the Ponders End and Edmonton area, the Originators have come to investigate life in 2017.

They are amazed at the human’s strength in adversity but are concerned at the direction their future seems to be taking.

Exploring themes of immigration, isolation and the struggle for identity, the InterACTion drama group created an entertaining, moving and unforgettable journey using humour, drama and original music. 

The play was performed at the Dugdale Theatre in 2017.
