Although Shellshock is a play about war, about both sides of a battle which took place in Turkey 100 years ago, it is not a play that focuses on the battlefield itself with all the sounds and fury of war. Instead, it is a story told in an unexpected way, with characters you might not usually find in a war story….



When a mysterious visitor arrives from Turkey in 2015, young Tom Lindsay, his widowed father, Jack, and grandmother, June, all become embroiled in a drama which had its extraordinary origins at Gallipoli a hundred years before. Justin Fleming's exciting new play is for all people of all ages. It is a gripping story which, by gradual and intriguing revelations, takes us on a thrilling journey to the powerful heart of humanity.

In the Kingdom of Contradiction - it is raining, yet the sky is blue with sun.



Contrary to a Chinese edict against western influence in music, a courageous woman secretly teaches her young son to play the piano in the home. In setting him on the path to fame as a leading pianist, neither she nor her son expected they would become embroiled in a dangerous confrontation between Shanghai and Canberra. From the birth of China’s Cultural Revolution to the eve of the Tiananmen Square protests, Justin Fleming’s dazzling new play weighs the price of defiance in the face of brutality. His Mother’s Voice is a love story: the love between two young people from different worlds; the love that drives a mother to great sacrifice; and the love of a young man for his country.

This is a new translation by Justin Fleming of Molière’s The School for Wives, first staged in Paris in 1662.



Arnolde, a wealthy business man, reveals that he confined a young girl, Agnes, in a convent as a child so that some day she may be his innocent, ignorant and therefore dutiful wife. Now that Agnes is of marrying age, Arnolde hides her in a house and plans their wedding.



Horace, the handsome son of Arnolde’s friend, catches a glimpse of Agnes, and falls in love with her. By boldly gaining access to the house, he learns from Agnes how her master keeps her a prisoner from the world.



Incensed at Horace’s secret advances, Arnolde forbids Agnes from seeing Horace and sends for a lawyer to prepare the marriage contract.



But in an hilarious sequence of events, Fate reveals that it has a very different plan in mind.



“Moliere would surely have approved of Justin Fleming's daring new version, a taut, biting and extremely funny masterpiece of translation. In some ways, Fleming's words are the stars of this show, which zings along in rhyming couplets, true to Moliere's original, but also detours effortlessly into the realm of alternate rhyme to provide contrast for a modern audience's ears.”
