Written and performed by legendary and award-winning trans playwright, performer and poet Jo Clifford this unique and extraordinary show combines theatre with storytelling, spoken word and ritual.
A tale of all-encompassing love and acceptance, moving and witty, warm and profound and whose message is made all the more urgent in view of recent world events
Lynn Gardner, The Guardian
"moving and infinitely graceful...deserves more than a star rating....It's a humane, mischievous and loving solo show, one in which bread is shared, wine is drunk and the familiar stories of the New Testament are reimagined. In the process, the world is also reimagined – as a far better, kinder and more tolerant place."

Written and performed by Margo MacDonald
This is the gripping story of the all-female gang which terrorized London for over 100 years. Clever, organized, devious & daring; they stole from the rich and gave to themselves. A fascinating piece of lost women's history, only recently brought to light, the play focuses on the 1920s when the gang was at the height of its power—and when the events took place which would come to mean its downfall.
⋆⋆⋆⋆ As soon as the lights come up, Margo MacDonald captivates, knowing how to keep an audience in the palm of her hand…astonishing.”
Ashleigh More, Broadway Baby
⋆⋆⋆⋆…the attention of the audience never strays and remains ensnared in a captivating story.
The play is brilliantly written and exceptionally performed…you will be left wanting to know more. Highly recommended.”

With Abi McCoughlin
Written by Andrea Brunello
Adapted and directed by Stefania Bochicchio
Laura Bailey (Abi McLoughlin), is a PHD in Quantum physics; she starts delivering a lecture to her freshers on the subject that fills her with wonder: quantum mechanics.
Leading her captive audience through wondrous double slits experiments and cats in boxes which are dead AND alive, all seems well and resonant with a perfect world of infinite complexity, when, in the midst of all that awe-inspiring joy, the lecture turns into a confession that mixes some of the more advanced ideas of physics with the professor's secrets. As the scientific world clashes with our own emotions the audience can’t help but empathise with the vulnerable academic, but what is the tragic tale that Professor Laura Bailey slowly reveals?

Our first Theatre and Music season at Draperhall, the new, civic performance space in London SE1 (The fabled Elephant & Castle) was a resounding success and saw the London premieres of THE FLOOD, Emily Carding's one woman RICHARD III, JOAN, BABS & SHELAGH too, and Celia Mur's SKETCHES of SPAIN. Off season we hosted back Badac Company for the London premiere of their new work THE BOX.
ALL our shows received four and five stars reviews!
But we are not the types to rest on our laurels, so let us introduce you to our ground-breaking 2017 season.
Sir Patrick Stewart said 'Infallible London are planning great things in Southwark, both entertaining and theatrical, as well as benefiting the local community. I recommend having a look at what they are doing.'
