The first three shows are:

‘Table’ written by Tanya Ronder | 9 April – 18 May

‘Go on then, table, speak. You tell us, you were there, you’ve always been there.’

​Telling the story of one family over 200 years, Table is a collaborative exploration of belonging, identity and the things we pass on. Nine performers play over thirty parts in this rough epic which features live music, dance and a very special piece of furniture.

Bullet Catch | 21 May – 1 June

Combines the thrills of a high-grade magic show with a profound theatrical meditation on free-will’ Daily Telegraph

A stunt so dangerous Houdini refused to attempt it, the Bullet Catch has claimed the lives of at least 12 people since its conception in 1613. Now, direct from a sell-out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Rob Drummond’s dark and exhilarating one-man show comes to The Shed.  A unique theatrical experience featuring mind reading, levitation and, if you’re brave enough to stay for it, the most notorious finale in show business.

Mission Drift By the TEAM, in collaboration with Heather Christian and Sarah Gancher | 5 – 28 June

‘What a blast. The company fulfil all their promise in this gorgeous, gaudy musical.’The Guardian

Mission Drift is a pioneering journey across the USA in pursuit of the soul of American capitalism, told through atomic blasts, lizard ballet, and original music that fuses Vegas glitz with Southern blues. Mythic and contemporary stories collide in this new work by award-winning New York ensemble The TEAM.
