‘It isn’t legal or ethical... But it is incredibly exciting and it’s on the internet so that means it’s probably OK!’
A group of online friends have met through ‘second-life’ therapy site madhampton.co.uk., a slightly scary therapeutic community.
Madhampton is a virtual English village with an array of larger-than-life characters. It appears to offer sanctuary for troubled minds but when they meet for real the friends discover it is more complicated than that...
Who is the mysterious figure behind the site and what is his real agenda?
Why are forest-dwelling rebels the Square Wheelers so keen to take it down?
And do they really have to wear tights while they’re doing it?
The friends must decide whether Madhampton is a healing place or a sinister cult... And how far they are prepared to go to escape their painful realities.
My ThoughtsIt sounds as mad as the name and I like the poster (yes, I know, never judge a book by it’s cover - although these days I think you can, as the best book covers are designed to communicate the contents or reach a target audience, but that’s a whole other discussion...) so I’m really looking forward to this one.

On The Stage Of The Presentwww.onthestageofthepresent.posterous.com
The BlurbOn The Stage Of The Present (Tom Pritchard) brings a brand of performance improvisation combining movement, dance and text to story tell, reigniting a long standing collaboration with Chloe Whipple. Other special guests will join us over the three night run where a whole new piece will be discovered onstage each night.
So join us for APOPO, a series of 3 performances on the 5th, 6th and 7th of April 2012.
5th Night 1) You are not allowed in the past anymore
6th Night 2) The medium is somewhere in between us
7th Night 3) Avoidance of a monochrome disappointment
My ThoughtsI don’t know Tom Pritchard’s work, but I know Chloe is fantastic and I like the titles for each night. It’s also 2 for 1 on Adult tickets, so I reckon it’s worth a watch!
