Amira and Linda live day-in-day out under one roof, balancing the needs of their oh-so-different English mother and Algerian father.

Career driven Amira prays five times a day, takes care of the house and pays the bills, whilst Linda is busy swiping right on Tinder and pulling pints at the local pub.

When Amira decides it’s time for her to get married, the sisters battle over what’s going to happen next, and who they really are.

This modern family drama discusses what it means to come from two cultures and, ultimately, what it means to be sisters.

When: 8th, 9th, 15th & 16th September 2019, 7pm

Where: The Bunker, 53A Southwark St, London SE1 1RU

Ticket: £10 (or as a £15 double bill ticket with Willow)

Gabi is 100% sure she knows why she and her girlfriend Lottie broke up. Or 70% sure. Maybe 50%. Can she show it to you? The best parts, the parts she still doesn’t understand, and the parts she’s still trying to get over.

But is it possible to tell your own story, and tell it honestly? Especially when your ex-girlfriend is sharing the stage with you.

Throughout Willow, Gabi and Lottie explore the fault lines in their relationship, and their (very) different views on the fallout of events.

Willow looks at how being certain and being truthful aren’t always the same thing, and what happens when someone you love doesn’t play the part you expect.

When: 8th, 9th, 15th & 16th September 2019, 8.30pm

Where: The Bunker, 53A Southwark St, London SE1 1RU

Ticket: £10 (or as a £15 double bill ticket with Different Sand)

Different Sand and Willow are being staged as a Double Bill!

Different Sand starts at 7pm, and Willow at 8.30pm, with an interval in between. You can buy a £10 ticket to see one show or a £15 ticket to see both.

Those these are separate shows, we're staging them one after the other each night as both shows focus on the idea of home, looking at what makes us human, examining our connections and relationships to one another.

These plays will also question what that home looks like – is it a flat share between two best friends in East London, or a kitchen in a traditional Algerian household?  And who gets to decide those definitions?
