Rising Tides is a platform developed by GBworks to support performance-based artists making unique work that prioritizes collaboration, equality and openness. The formation of GBworks was instigated by Gianna Burright and Gwynne Bilski’s desire to create ongoing platforms to showcase their own work while also supporting and presenting the work of other female, female identifying, and non-binary artists. Rising Tides;01 is the first in an ongoing series where Gianna and Gwynne carefully curate an evening interdisciplinary work spanning dance, theater, performance-based art and live music, in conscious celebration of the power of feminine identities.
Thought Cheerleading was reserved for perky yanks? Think again!
They’re sexy, they’re cute, they’re popular to boot.
Fokin’ Bring It On Lads is a spoof of American teen movies including Bring It On, Mean Girls, Clueless and John Tucker Must Die.
Socialite Bianca has it all; the perfect boyfriend, gaggle of gal pals and is captain of the cheerleading team…
But when she moves to the North of England, how will she survive?

Writer/comedian David Head and singer/songwriter Matt Glover of Sincere Deceivers are proud to present their critically acclaimed story and song show “A Good Service on All Other Lines” for one night only.
Come and enjoy intertwining tales of dreamers, drunkards and lovers. Or at the very least come watch/hear/tolerate some intertwining tales. Enjoyment is entirely optional.
Basically it’s funny stories and melancholy folk-pop. And here’s some nice things people said:
★★★★★ “Stunning” – EdFringe Review

★★★★ “Beautiful” – Fringe Biscuit
★★★★ “Hilarious” – The Scotsman
Five parties. One big mouth. A biting and heartfelt odyssey about what it really means to be loud. Gobby is a darkly comic telling of survival, and a lesson in how to throw a really good party.
Written and performed by Jodie Irvine (Soho Young Company, The Second City), directed by Serafina Cusack (Soho Young Company, Royal Court, Theatre 503).
Butterfly Powder: A Very Modern Play
by Jack Robertson
“this might almost be amusing if it were some farce played upon a stage but this is my life!”
It is a perfectly mediocre morning in the very modern household of Mr and Mrs Fox. They sip rhubarb tea and avoid eye contact. With the arrival of increasingly strange visitors, things soon start to spiral out of control. The maid has prophetic dreams, the widow has allergies and the goldfish may or may not have a toothache.
Then a murder takes place and that’s when it starts getting weird.
A new dark absurdist comedy from a writer you’ve never heard of.
Fake IDs at the ready, they’re expecting booze, boys and hopefully some bonking.
Bitches in the Ford KA includes a series of disasters involving cheap vodka and a MacDonald’s Fillet-O-Fish. Will the girls get their dream night of fit boys and a couple of WKDs? Whatever happens, it’s going to be a night to remember. Strap in with Cold Dinner Theatre for their new-writing comedy piece at the Rosemary Branch Theatre.
‘The comic timing is impeccable.. in tune with one another like synchronized swimmers in crop tops and false eyelashes’ (Ed Fringe Review) ★★★★★
‘Bitches in the Ford KA started the engine to propel comedy one step further’ (London Pub Theatre) ★★★★
