"Earthquakes in London is the Performing arts second year acting show, directed by Emily Jane Grant coming this December to the Stanwix Theatre.

How will these sisters cope with it all?"
A moving, comical and eye-opening story of four young women fighting for education and self-determination against the larger backdrop of women's suffrage.
1896. Girton College, Cambridge, the first college in Britain to admit women. The Girton girls study ferociously and match their male peers grade for grade. Yet, when the men graduate, the women leave with nothing but the stigma of being a 'blue stocking' - an unnatural, educated woman. They are denied degrees and go home unqualified and unmarriageable.
In Jessica Swale's debut play, Blue Stockings, Tess Moffat and her fellow first years are determined to win the right to graduate. But little do they anticipate the hurdles in their way: the distractions of love, the cruelty of the class divide or the strength of the opposition, who will do anything to stop them. The play follows them over one tumultuous academic year, in their fight to change the future of education.

Template: "House of Bernarda Alba" by Federico García Lorca
Following the death of her husband, Bernarda Alba closes her house and orders her five daughters an eight-year mourning period.
The outside is trying to protect the façade of the healty family - but behind the locked doors, Bernarda Alba wakes up in a tyrannical fashion and defends the bulwark of her retreat and her departure from the world for emergency even with armed force.
By blindly clinging to traditions, she builds a fortress, and as life passes by outside, the young women embroider at their dowry, longing for the absent men.
As the youngest daughter Adela breaks out of the domestic prison, the tragedy takes its course ...
I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change
Book and Lyrics by Joe DiPietro | Music by Jimmy Roberts
This celebration of the mating game takes on the truths and myths behind that contemporary conundrum know as 'the relationship.' Act I explores the journey from dating and waiting to love and marriage, while Act II reveals the agonies and triumphs of in-laws and newborns, trips in the family car and pick-up techniques of the geriatric set. This hilarious revue pays tribute to those who have loved and lost, to those who have fallen on their face at the portal of romance, to those who have dared to ask, 'Say, what are you doing Saturday night?'
