A double feature of critically-acclaimed theatre from Headpictures Productions and Monkeydog.

About Tiptree: No-One’s Damn Secret But My Own -

James Tiptree Jr: CIA official, international traveler, “ineluctably masculine” writer of science fiction...

... And, in 1976, ‘outed’ as Alice Sheldon, a 61-year-old woman from Virginia.

An award-winning writer, born from a jar of English Marmalade; what happens when your secret’s out, but it’s only the signature that’s changed?

“Tiptree... is a fascinating biography... eloquently written, raising questions about gender, fulfilment, subterfuge and love.” Fringereview

About The Trials of Harvey Matusow -

The first great age of fake news, as seen through the eyes of America’s most notorious liar. Harvey Matusow was at the centre of the McCarthyite red scare: an ex-commie who turned FBI informer, Matusow spent four years mouthing off to anti-red committees, before putting the cat among the stoolpigeons by revealing almost all of his testimony to have been a pack of lies. But what drove Matusow to his extremes? Was it money? Was it fear? Or was it a simple lust for fame – fame of any kind and at any cost?

'What is unequivocal is the sheer powerful brilliance of Cohen’s script... And then there’s the performance – pitch-perfect, adroit, vivacious and charming.' FringeGuru
