It's the year AD1 and rumours are floating around Judea... Tales of angels, UFOs and a miraculous baby's birth in Bethlehem - but who could believe a story like that?

Adventure stirs as a journalist is sent to sniff out the facts in the back-end of nowhere and what felt like a dead-end may just have life in it after all - though he'd better watch out... Herod doesn't take kindly to reports of a new king being born.

News is lively and hilarious 2-man retelling of the Nativity with a whole host of characters - see the Christmas story like you've never seen it before!

CROSSING THE BAR

Having escaped their sentences on a stolen boat, two outlaws find themselves lost in the ocean with only an old onboard radio connecting them to the outside world. A voice over the radio claims to have the answers. As they drift into the boundless unforgiving deep, they battle the elements, their past and each other.

Has their freedom become their prison? How far can they run? Will they find salvation or is the real storm brewing inside the ship?

Written and produced by Artless, this is a reimagining of the ‘good thief and bad thief’ crucified alongside Jesus. Exploring themes of redemption, friendship and morality, 'Crossing the Bar' takes you on a voyage to the ends of the earth and beyond.

TO WAR WITH GOD

To mark the centenary of the end of WW1 Artless presents: ‘To War With God’.

In the horror of the trenches a young chaplain stands with his men, tending their bruised and battered faith. Little did they know, his was long since lost; buried amongst the mud, blood and mortar shells.

Based on the book by Peter Fiennes, To War With God is a feature length stage production that follows the life of Monty Guilford, a chaplain in the First World War;

from the carnage of his first days at The Somme to his return to a grieving nation.

 

Could his faith ever be the same again? Would his wounds ever heal?
