Big Trouble in Drowsy Bottom (The Memoirs of Ivan Theodore Thatcher)

When three burglars break into a semi-detatched house in a small village, in the middle of nowhere, Detective Cordelia Knight and Constable Ivan Theodore Thatcher are called in to catch the miscreants. However during their investigations they uncover a mystery more fantastical, horrific and intriguing than either one of them could ever have imagined. Will they ever get to the bottom of the mysterious murders in Drowsy Bottom? Will the burglars get away scot free? Will they ever make it out with their sanity in tact? One thing is for sure... this hilarious, fast-paced comedy from Parsnips Youth Theatre is not to be missed.

Apokeylips / The Not-So Ordinaries

19/03/2015 - 21/03/2015

Apokeylips by Claire Parsons...

Apocalypse… Destruction, Catastrophe, Disclosure, Prophecy and Revelation. In the ruins of civilisation, in the not too distant future the young people of Earth find themselves awaking in the aftermath of World War Three. They are frightened, they are alone and they stand as innocent as children at the dawn of time… Actually they are children… literally children. No adult survived the destruction of their society and now it is the epic responsibility of these fragile innocents to rebuild humanity from the ground up, and hopefully avoid the mistakes made by those who went before them... Fingers crossed!

The Not So Ordinaries by Jon Boustead...

Amy is a girl, an ordinary girl, and it feels to her, an invisible girl. The only people who seem to see her are the bullies who torment her. That is, until she meets Erin (another ordinary girl) and a troupe of not-so-ordinary agents who decide that it is time to stop the bullies once and for all and perhaps along the way teach an ordinary girl, that she is not-so-ordinary after all.
