THE VAULT OF LOST SHOWS
Welcome, traveller, to the Vault of Lost Shows. Here you will find the Strange, the Not-Quite and the Forgotten.
These are the one-offs that had all too brief a lifespan, the multimedia projects that are rarely seen or heard and the mini-plays never to be performed again. Please, take a look around but take care not to linger too long or you too might well become a Lost Show…
KING LEAR (2006)

Audience members were taken on a walking tour on the spooky side of town risking being scared to death, turned into a frog, hijacked by a highwayman or eaten by the terrifying Basilisk of Saffron Walden! Which is not just a sock puppet. Honest. You can watch the trailer that accompanied the event if you like.
After rummaging around some boxes of old books and scripts, you come across a box full of old photos that appear to be of a horse in a flowery dress. You decide that you’ve seen enough for one day. Time to leave The Vault.
