​1944. Britain is at War. The men have gone to fight and the women at home have picked up the slack. And the slacks. Welcome to The Gateways, London’s most vibrant underground nightspot for women. And other women. Ronnie’s living her best life. Betty’s life’s on hold. They meet. They dance. They fall in love. But with an Allied victory on the horizon, can a love forged in conflict survive a world at peace?

V.E. is a funny, poignant and romantic insight into a rarely-explored period in British queer history.

For an inner-city busker, London can be a pretty grim place. It’s all bankers, beatings and Brexit. But when he stumbles upon an unlikely love story, the fledgling couple inspire a ream of new songs - and he can’t believe his luck. In true Documentarian style, our busker watches from afar, trying not to intervene. But Mother Nature can be cruel and unforgiving; and doesn’t heartbreak make for much better music?

"Deep underground there's a Bunker of creativity. A furnace of friendship, kindness and support. 
Words are written and ingrained in my brain and others take them, cradle them in their arms and raise them to walk on their own two feet. I love theatre. People are changing the world

MICHAEL SOUTHAN, Writer
“It’s a great concept. Loved it. Brilliantly acted and directed by a properly diverse cast. Bravo team Amplified Theatre.”

"Record deals, headlining tours, t-shirts with your face on. It's gonna happen and when it does you won't ever have to send out another CV again."

When a South London indie rock band suddenly find themselves on the road to success, the dynamics of the group soon become strained and fractured. 

Based on a true story, Unsigned explores unemployment amongst young adults, the power of social media and the ever-changing cogs of the music industry.

A multi-media experience that mixes theatre, digital video projections and live original music.

Supported by the Academy of Live and Recorded Arts,
Guildhall Porstmouth and the New Theatre Royal.
