  1. The Changeling Middleton’s Jacobean tragedy relays the story of Beatrice Joanna who has been forced into an arranged marriage with Piracquo.

  2. Two-Way Mirror A beautiful double bill exploring illusion, love and the power of desire. In the thrilling yet tender Some Kind of Love Story, a private detective is determined to expose a miscarriage of justice. But his fragile ex-lover seems to know more than she’s telling and as the pressure grows, reality and truth prove harder and harder to grasp. Elegy for a Lady follows a conversation between a shopkeeper and a man searching for a gift for his dying mistress. Confidences and secrets are shared in an intimate exchange through which we question how well we ever really know the ones we love. A poignant epitaph to Arthur Miller’s genius, Two-Way Mirror is often attributed to his tumultuous relationship with Marilyn Monroe. Strong language.
