Gig theatre, psychological thrillers, concert plays, award winning playwrights, true stories, unsolved mysteries, ex-lovers and … a doll that comes to life - all part of the Spring Season at the Space running from 15 January to 4 May 2019.


The season kicks-off with Edinburgh Fringe hit BRAWN (15 - 19 Jan) with Christopher Wollaton giving a "commanding, tormented performance of remarkable physicality" (Broadway Baby) as Ryan, a young man whose fitness drive soon becomes a threatening obsession.


New writing features heavily in the season including critically acclaimed Proforca theatre company with their "extraordinary" (Spy in the Stalls) FEEL (5 - 16 February) and award winning playwright Iskandar Sharazuddin with his honest and comic POST MORTEM (16 - 20 April).


Paperback Theatre present "powerful and thought provoking" (Broadway Baby) WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT BOBBY (OFF EASTENDERS) (2 - 4 May) and premiere their new show ME AND MY DOLL (30 April - 4 May) - the anti-rom com to end all rom-coms.


The season also continues to put female led work centre stage.


Space Associate Company Wonderbox present FFS! FEMINIST FABLE SERIES (5 - 9 March) a night of, bitesize plays from the makers of 'A Womb of One's Own'.


Expect taboo subjects and untold stories in this proudly feminist night of theatre.


Psychological thriller WE KNOW NOW SNOWMEN EXIST (19 - 23 March) from Cumbrian based Highly Suspect, based on the true story of Dyatlov Pass Incident, is gripping, goose bump inducing drama from up and coming director Lexie Ward.


The Undisposables present THE WASP (23 - 27 April), an explosive thriller by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm (Emilia, The Globe) about two destructive women who are out to take each other down.


Finally, Robyn Paterson's darkly comedic, "achingly poignant" (The Stage) story about belonging and home comes to the Space in THE SOUTH AFREAKINS (19 - 23 February).


Milk and Blood theatre company present their Edinburgh sell out, psychedelic drug comedy THE DIP (29 January - 2 February) - expect confetti canons, harpoon nerf guns, original music and a 6ft tyrannical police fish!


Why The Sky present wonderfully unsettling PORTENTS (26 February - 2 March).


From deserted motorways to city streets, this is a story of conspiracy, isolation and rebirth.


Finally, for lovers of beautiful live music and theatre, the season includes Jared McNeill's award winning concert play THE CONDUCTOR (26 March - 14 April).


Based on the composer Dmitri Shostakovich who, amidst a siege on his city in WWII, composed his haunting "symphony for the people".


The rousing true story of a sound that lifted an entire city in its darkest hour featuring the music of the "Leningrad Symphony" performed live.
