Caught (2007)

In 1609, whilst on the run for killing a man, Caravaggio paints a glorious Nativity
In 1969, the Mafia steal it……

From these raw facts Theatre Alibi concoct an outrageous fiction. Two dark, violent lives, centuries apart, are connected and briefly illuminated by the power of a painting. Part love story, part thriller, part dark farce, Caught combines inventive performance with live music and a visual richness inspired by Caravaggio, the master of light and dark.

Apple John

by Daniel Jamieson

The life story of a man called John. And an apple tree.

The story of a man and an apple tree are told side by side. Full of the usual things that lives contain - blizzards, bicycles, rock’n’roll, train sets, heatwaves, love, blossom, accidents, hurricanes, fruit, babies and false teeth. A delightful story told without the need to utter a single word.
