Ford Entertainment presents


by Moira Buffini
Directed by Douglas Dean

A serio-comic look at two thousand years of human folly in 90 minutes. Saucy, powerful and hilarious, LOVEPLAY makes a voracious search through time and history and challenges the whys and ways we aspire to love.

Although the time-scale is great, the location remains the same plot of land in what is now London. 10 scenes takes place in one London location: over the centuries it moves from Roman temple to medieval abbey, elegant town house, Victorian studio and 1960s squat, eventually becoming a modern dating agency. Loveplay gives us a uniquely philosophical view about the need and desire humans have for carnal and spiritual love. The constant factor is the quest, often doomed, for love and sex. Witty, inventive, philosophical, sexy, serious, and playful, Loveplay is pure elixir for the soul.

Directed by Matthew T. Reynolds
and devised with Caterina Bertone, Chiara Giuliani,
Veejay Kaur, Adrian Moore, Rita Neveckaite, Sarah Tighe,
Francesca Maggi, Savis Joze Sadeghian & Theodora Voutsa.

Each piece, provocatively indifferent to each other, ranges from an optimistic psychopath, a wannabe Frigidaire to a milk obsessed expat.
A hilarious evening exploring consequences of inter-dimensional nonsense.

Seeking to correct a “mistake,” Claire turns to the predatory Scarlett

The Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award Winner


by David Auburn

When a famous mathematician dies, his daughter is left to carry on his legacy amidst doubts regarding a very important aspect of his work. The link between genius and madness and whether either, or both, can be inherited emerges when authorship of a mathematical proof is questioned.

This subtle, witty story of human relationships amid family and friends

asks large questions and examines the uncertainties of love, trust, and personal integrity.

Directed by Catherine Durickas

Assistant Direction by Ben Stender

with Jason Atkinson, Michael Fitzpatrick,

Katie McGovern and Tara Elise Thomas

The English Theatre of Rome presents

Alexis Dubus



Alexis Dubus' debut solo show, recently a hit at the Edinburgh Fringe 2008, where many shows contained swearing at the Festival, but only one that went into detail about our wonderful 4-letter friends. "A R#ddy Brief History of Swearing" is one man's attempt to discover why a handful of words in the English language still have the power to shock, offend and amuse in equal measure. Alexis uncovers the science of swearing, the ancestry of all your favourite swears, and why we do it in the first place. As informative as it is funny, packed with facts, fables, funnies and other words beginning with F, you're guaranteed a r#ddy good time.

Ford Entertainment presents
The English Theatre of Rome
in a world premiere play
inspired by Virginia Woolf's Orlando

directed and designed by Dustin Wills*,
devised with Spring Karlo and the performers: Amy Briggs, Luke Charles, Lorenza Damiani, Nicole Ferlei-Brown, Gaby Ford, and with the assistant direction of Angelo Carotenuto.

A wacky, purgatory journey through mythological Greece and the mind of Virginia Woolf.
A sexless wanderer searches through the desert, digging a new hole for every memory it once possessed. The arduous process of putting ones self back together (re-membering.) drives an androgynous youth to seduce Herakles in a dress, transform from man to woman, take advice from a fish, have tea with Virginia Woolf, and ultimately codify the life cylce of the genus species; Cyamathoe Caeneas.

Five actors, from Scotland, England, Australia, America and Italy engaged in an original "street theatre" that uses ingenious means to differentiate characters and reveal the plot, simplifying the life of Caesar so that even the actors understand what is going on! And that's saying something.
