Brand new Leftfield Theatre Company needs you!

In 1971 playwright John McGrath set up a theatre group called 7:84, based on a statistic from 1966 that claimed 7% of the population owned 84% of the country's wealth.

7:84 was a launch pad for a lot of actors careers, and included names such as David Tennant, Douglas Henshall, Peter Mullan and Cathy-Ann Mcphee to name a few.

We believe that the time has come for a theatre company that pushes the boundaries of convention in the same way as 7:84, and LeftField…

Got a few spare minutes? A Short Story for ya

One Down

I took the tram to the library today, as I do every day except on Sundays when the library is closed. It cost the usual two dollars for a return ticket.

There were my usual, silent ‘friends’ on board. We have never spoken or have even asked each other our names but we are friends nonetheless. If one of us is absent then the loss is like a gaping wound felt by all, a tear in the fabric of the familiar. We grieve.

As a body we look sharply up should…

Scurlock 14

Within a few hours, one of the worst years of my life will thankfully be over but please do not despair on my behalf. My pickle has not fallen off its burger and the fried egg of happiness has not totally slid off the greasy plate of joy. The next year will be a battle, as it will be for all of you out there, to achieve things that you wish to achieve in spite of the forces set against you.
