ACT 1: ‘Sound Bite’ 
The day is July 16th, 1969. 
The Eagle has landed. 
In the deepest depths of NASA HQ, two men Dick and Mickey, with guidance from operative Janine, have been assigned the almighty task of providing Neil Armstrong, the iconic first words to be spoken from the surface of the moon and change mankind forever. 
There’s only one problem... 
Writers’ Block 
Act 2: ‘Remedies - A Ballad Of Broken Britain’ 
Brexit, benefits, broken homes, bickering and viagra are only a few of the issues examined in this new comedy. 
Set within the 4 walls of a local pharmacy, this one room situation comedy/drama features two opinionated, strong willed and polarised members of staff. 
As they witness the ailments and sicknesses of the public, they may be able to administer the medicine, but can they find the remedy for the the ill’s of Britain? 
“What's in a name?”Thirty seconds later, we still didn't know; but the Middle-Weight Theatre Company was founded in Exeter, Devon. In 2013, Matt Roberts & Tom Stabb with a joint disposition and mutual love of dialogue and comedy, not to mention a shared caffeine addiction, combined their efforts towards creating a focused and dedicated touring theatre company through the means of new and original writing. 
We hope to help challenge and push people’s boundaries through the use of language and whether it is set in the past or a dystopian future; our first production ‘Sound Bite, or latest ‘Remedies’, are no exception in drawing on parallels to our complicated present.
