Plays’ Lunchtime Fourplay offers both business people and
theatre lovers a short, stimulating shared daytime experience,
in a great space for possibilities…with or without food or the
coffee! You can even bring your own! Grab some colleagues,
customers, friends, family, a bite to eat (bite-size tapas
dishes available on arrival in the theatre space), enjoy the
show and a chance to connect, then return to work refreshed and
invigorated, or stay on and meet, socialise, network some more
in the St. James’ Bar and Brasserie.
The menu consists of four
ten-minute comedy plays: one from our Vintage menu, and comedies from our press
acclaimed International touring show "Bite-Size Comedies A La Carte."
Together with sister company 360 Degree Vision™, the group have
been using employee and market research to create immersive
theatre experience to help company managers and staff engage
fully with what real people are truly feeling about their
company, its products and services, its culture.

Not available. Reports are that this is impressive as an ensemble work, but
otherwise, it divides the professional reviewers totally. Some find it puerile,
without a memorable song or any warmth beyond a knowing "aren't we clever to
parody Brecht." Others find that parody appealing and smart, with an
entertainingly dark humour. It may try too hard and be squeezed onto too small a
stage, but there's something more than the title suggests to them. The cast seem
to run the gamut from "entertaining" to "wrong job" too - depending on who you
choose to read. One for the musically curious (in every sense of the term),
seems to be the opinion.
