O!Edipus

A World War 2 allied prisoner of war camp. British Colonel Humphrey Huvar, American Flight Lieutenant Stuckit and Sikh Sepoy Charsingh Singh of the British Indian Army, have been charged, under bane of death, to perform a production of Oedipus for their fellow prisoners. But without a copy of the text and a common world-view, madness will inevitably ensue!

Fall about in amazement as three buffoons explore the agonies of empire, colonialism, incest, defecation, destiny and theater-making in this piece of ridiculous clown-drama. Come O! with us for about an hour or so.

Written and directed by Ravi Kapoor and performed by him, Russell Milton and Norman Scott.

"Birthday" by Michael David Ker

A comedy about one man losing it all in a year - his parents and home - and finding his way to rise from the ashes in an attempt to celebrate life.

Sins

Can we ever stop paying for the past? Can the person we want to be ever escape the person we are now and were then? What price must be paid for not only our own crimes, but those of people close to us?
