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.

Table Mates

A new play by Daniel Jamieson

Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Six O’clock comes and three weary workers return to their cosy abode. With the barest of hellos, they take off their coats and put on their chefs whites. They are Starter, Main and Pudding and each night, without fail, they cook each other a delicious meal. Starter makes starter, Main makes main and Pudding makes pudding.

They soon set to work in the kitchen, dancing round each other like Morecambe and Wise making breakfast. Starter fashions an exquisite nibble of microscopic, but mouthwatering delight. Main conjures a dish that carries her heart home on a whiff of basil and lime. Pudding steams a duff the size of a football, so no-one need fear going hungry. Three cooks, three very different lives. Each course tells a story.

Theatre Alibi combine vivid storytelling, live music and a good old boogie to bring this funny and creative household to life.
