2014 is gunna be full of fun
May we start 2014 by officially welcoming Jemma Gross to the Epsilon team as our Artistic Director. After such a wonderful experience working together on Skin Tight over the last 2 years, It wasn’t a hard decision to ask her to join us at the helm. We couldn’t be happier & very much looking forward to what the year ahead has in store for us.
We are still reeling from the success of our 2013 production of Gary Henderson’s “SKIN TIGHT“ in the opening season of Park Theatre. 5 STAR REVIEWS, Play Text published with Methuen Drama & now an invite to SAN DIEGO FRINGE FESTIVAL this June. We’ll keep you posted on this as the news comes in.
An ordinary couple with an extraordinary love relive the
physical, violent and pleasurably episodic remembrances of
their first words, first date and first intimacy. In an hour Skin
Tight explores the entire spectrum of human emotion revealing
Tom and Elizabeth’s darkest secrets, deepest passions and heart
The lyrical and dramatic beauty of Henderson’s script shows us
a couple refusing to succumb to the brutality of old age and the
numbing of flesh & mind. This is their final chance to say all the
things they never had the nerve to…. until now.
Interview with Epsilon Producer, Angela Bull about her passion for Skin Tight
Exciting projects for the year ahead.
We will be returning to Park Theatre on March 10th for a Rehearsed Reading of ‘The Visitor” by Peter Lantos.
On 19 March 1944 Germany invaded Hungary and the fate of Hungarian Jewry was sealed.
The play enfolds against this historical backdrop and chronicles the life and fate of a middle class family, the Singers, between 1938 and 1945. While Samuel, the patriarch of the family is dying in an upstairs bedroom, the family gathers to celebrate, under the wings of Fanny, the matriarch, the arrival of Adam, their first grandchild. Their three daughters and only son pursue their individual quest for a happy life, ignoring all the warning signs. Only the unexpected arrival of a stranger who warns them of the coming storm derails the celebratory mood. The play is about shattered dreams and suppressed desire, sibling rivalry and maternal conflict. Only at the edge of the abyss, do they finally realise the impending threat – too late. Despite the destruction, there is redemption and survival. However, the stranger, appearing at crucial times in the life of the family, remains an enigma.
If you wish to join us for the evening please contact our press agent Anne Mayer to reserve your place or for any further information.

Also in the diary
We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with 2013 Bruntwood Literary Prize Winner – Anna Jordan on her hard hitting play “Chicken Shop”, which follows the world of Hendrix & his journey into adulthood & learning of the sordid world of sex trafficking. This will be directed by Epsilon Artistic Director, Jemma Gross.
To follow this, Anna will be directing an incredibly poignant play about cyber bulling, “Crystal Springs” by Kathy Rucker. We will be bringing this over from San Fransisco where Anna will be directing it in the spring.
So, as you can see, we have our hands full & can’t wait to fill you in with the when & where these fantastic projects will be taking place. We are in talks with venues now so hopefully you won’t have long to wait before you can start booking your tickets for the Epsilon 2014 season
