As an artist-led company, most of our artistic direction is dictated by the interests of the artists with whom we regularly work. Originally this gave us a strong theatrical inclination but we have more recently started to explore art production in other media.
This is because so many of our artists have talents and concerns in several areas and one of the things we are most excited about is the new directions in which this constantly pushes the company.
Please note this page is a little out of date, and will be expanded and prettified in the near future. At the moment we’re too busy creating new work to document the old! But for now here’s a selection of the sort of shows we’ve produced…
The Great Dark Gathering (2010)
You’ll laugh, you’ll quake… you may even do a shake as Trifle Gathering Productions, Scary Little Girls and the artistic community of Penryn invite you to do something wickedly different this Hallowe’en.
We ♥ Earth (2009)
In collaboration with activists from Climate Camp and Plane Stupid, Scary Little Girls presented a Valentine’s afternoon of films, songs, poems and storytelling at the Phoenix Cinema, Finchley, celebrating our love affair with planet earth. We ♥ Earth – love it or lose it!
In December 2009, Scary Little Girls’ curated our very own festival of theatre, music, cabaret, storytelling and visual arts. Bursting out of the Crypt Gallery on the Euston Road, this eclectic feast showcased the diverse talents of Scary Little Girls’ artists.
Noon of Night (2009)
Hallowe’en 2009 saw the return of our hugely popular boat event, for one night only. Madam Magdalene was your host onboard the Noon of Night on All Hallows Eve for a shadowy feast of music, magic and storytelling.
Suffragettes: 100 Years
A celebration of the work of the Actresses’ Franchise League (2009)
This joint project with Naomi Paxton displayed readings of plays by members of the Actresses’ Franchise League, supporting talks from leading academics and theatre practitioners and celebrated the launch of a book of the plays, many of which have never been published before.
Dark Fancies (2008)
Tales of twisted humour, luckless love and blood-soaked devotion shared in the most intimate of nocturnal settings: a barge afloat in London’s Grand Union Canal.
The Riot Showgrrrls Club (2008)
Putting the ‘camp’ into campaigning and the ‘heck!’ into hectoring feminist lecture: our pro-sex anti-porn cabaret show took Edinburgh by storm in 2008 – and went on to further acclaim at venues around London, Cornwall and at the 2009 Glastonbury Festival.
Sweet Witchery (2007)
An enchanting evening onboard a canal boat, travelling through spooky tunnels and waterways while listening to readings and poetry on a gothic theme…including works by Christina Rossetti and Joanna Baillie.
Bin The Bunny (2007)
Three short films produced by SLG on behalf of members of Anti Porn UK and the Bin The Bunny Campaign.
The Ladies’ Cage (2007)
Inspired by the life of Anna Parnell, a brilliant young Anglo-Irish woman drawn into political action by the threat of a new famine in Ireland, The Ladies’ Cage tells the story of the 18 months when Anna founded and ran the Ladies Land League, following the banning of the Land League and the imprisonment of the men who ran it.
Maria Stuart (2005)
Two religions divide a people and a land. Two rulers exploit religion to control their people. Terrorists, conspiracies, arbitrary arrest and detention, interrogation and intercepted correspondence – it’s unsettling how human behaviour at the highest level of power doesn’t change.
George & Zippy Do Glastonbury (2003)
This surreal interview was created on behalf of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament and was aired on Glastonbury Festival’s Radio Avalon in 2003.
The Kisses (2003)
The gothic classic Dracula is strikingly reborn in a remarkable new treatment.
