Following their success on the Midget Gems tour in 2008 and at Newstages 09, Northern Creative Theatre presents 'Elephant in the Room', a trilogy of short plays.
The idiomatic expression elephant in the room applies to an obvious truth that is being ignored or goes unaddressed. Through three contrasting scenarios this trilogy explores the lengths we go to to avoid facing up to the uncomfortable parts of our realities, and the consequences of consistently burying our heads in the sand, refusing to face up to that which is staring right at us.
In 'Nature Nurture' we meet the dysfunctional Bagshaw family who coexist with an unspoken void between them .
Arnold – Peter Edmunds
Jean – Tanja Kane
Frank - Dean Murray
'Mother and I' explores and the nature of denial in addiction and the impact of alcoholism on family relationships.
Lucinda – Ruth Marston
'Also Pink’ acquaints us with a young woman who perpetuates her own dissatisfaction by allowing underlying issues in her marriage to go unaddressed.
Yvonne – Harriet Chandler
This project is presented as 'work in progress' and there will be an opportunity for the audience to feed back and to discuss the work after the performance. Alternatively, please email feedback to

Congratulations the elephant really IS now in the room. Its so exciting when all that effort finally bears fruit.

My play Stage Fright went really well for 3 weeks in February with super reviews and we are now talking about/planning a tour.It's so satisfying!!

How did the play go on the 6th and what's the next step?

Regards Stefan

на данный момент перестала искать мужчину для ответственных отношений, как принято говорить время придет-все будет. а вы согласны с этим утверждением? или же же наоборот, нужны искать собственного мужчину, не полагаясь на судьбу?
