Nightflyer by Martin Malcolm, Dir James Woodhams
Bath Fringe (2015)
The Egg Uncracked (2015)
Tristan Bates (2015)
Lion and Unicorn (2016)
Five Bristol teens, out on the lash. It's cold, it's dark, the streets are spinning. Spook won't wake up and nobody's seen the NightFlyer ... A sell-out at The Tristan Bates and a wild and wonderful run at The Lion and Unicorn.
"Emeny’s sensitive portrayal of Jamster, tormented by an incident in the past and confused about his sexuality, stands out among five strong performances"
"an absorbing piece of theatre that grabbed myself and the rest of the audience and kept us spellbound until the final moment."
London Theatre 1
"Emeny is so quick and sly that you don’t realise what you’re thinking until it’s too late."

Bath Fringe (2017)
Devised from a single idea that explores, exposes and challenges the love, stress and anxiety of a young soldier returning home.
"This is hard-hitting, gut-wrenching stuff, and their performances are faultless, mesmerising; the onstage rapport palpable, the emotional truth shattering in its impact.”
“This beautifully-crafted production is a theatrical experience of
exceptional power, meaning, and truth. More, please.”

Greed, Betrayal, and Murder...
"Visually impressive, and even lush, it has great maturity cinematically, and becomes a full-blooded account of the green-eyed monster that is jealousy"

Cast and Company:
Running away from home to start a new life, Lucky finds herself quickly tumbling into the hands of a cult. They own everything, and soon they will own her. This twisted new tale exposes how your soul can be taken and sold in a heartbeat.
It's never been easier.
‘…a chaotic and chilling fusion of high emotion, fantastic choreography and direction and a courageous cast who put everything on the line…’
London Pub Theatre Review
"the stellar performances and faultless production value all contributed to telling this depressing story in the way it was intended. One to watch if you’re in the mood for an hour of insane theatre”

SUITCASE MEMORIAL (2018)
The Suitcase Memorial, created by Matthew Emeny & Directed by Josh
Commissioned in July 2018 by the Coburg University of Design,
Germany and the Harbutt Fund, Bath Spa University Alumni, to be presented
within the Beyond Forgetting Symposium held at the Coburg Design University,
The Suitcase Memorial is a highly visual street performance. The piece presents the stories, taken from the past and present, of
those who have left home, to fight, protect, seek refuge and find hope. These
highly visual specters, with their faces tired, dusty and grey, their clothes beaten
and broken. Some are dressed in fine suits and Sunday dresses, others in life
jackets, military uniforms and shorts and T-shirt. All have flowers wrapped
around their heads, and with every step, petals fall from their pockets. Carrying
their battered suitcases, they roam the streets, a new unfamiliar world, with
every new corner, building and person being terrifying.
