Employment Dispute

We're delighted to announce the first of six films we've been working on a series of six films over three years.  The first film was written about four years ago and filmed in 2014.  Unfortunately our cynical prediction of how the world might turn out has proved to be true.  Take a look and see what you think...

Transylvania or bust!

Preparations for Dracula are in full swing.  We're planning a spine-chilling retelling of this classic novel in the late spring of 2016 and we're feverishly filling in funding application forms and getting our teeth into pre-production research.

Even setting aside the prevalence of wolves and incisors, Dracula explores the issues of xenophobia and sexual oppression which have a tendency to suck the life blood out of communities.    It's also breathlessly entertaining.

As always Applecart is determined to create an experience which magnifies the claustrophobic environment of the story and we're presently investigating the possibility of performing in Victorian tunnels running beneath the bustle of modern-day London. 

We're hoping to project onto the brick walls as part of the show, so we're sending a small film crew off to Transylvania to get authentic footage.

We're busting a gut to make the show a fantastic experience that you won't forget!

Stories of Home - Public Artwork at St Clement's Hospital

Applecart have been working with schools, universities, social projects and charities to collate the histories and memories of the local community.  People from all over Tower Hamlets have been sharing their stories and their hopes for the future.  We're delighted to announce a special exhibition to celebrate this work on the 18th & 19th July at the Old School Room.

Come along and see how the memories of a community can provide a gateway for the future.  Discover how the stories of local people have informed the design of public artwork at the St Clement's Hospital site.

i Am Mark - A teaser for your ears

You all know it by now... Our i Am Mark tour has been happening for a while and some of us are travelling the lengths and breadths of the country to provide you with an amazing story and some pretty damn good entertainment. Click here for more info on tour dates. This show is both courageous and outrageous some would say adventurous but most of all it has some sleek tunes... Which is why we thought we'd give you (today on this rather gloomy Monday) a little snippet of the wonders you can expect when YOU come and see i Am Mark. Enjoy the sounds of music and for a review of the show, clickit' here
