Part of Theatre Maker
Every month we present an evening of rehearsed readings of new writing.
Each evening gives writers the chance to have their work read in front of a responsive audience and gives the audience the chance to witness new work and provide informal feedback to help the pieces develop.
Our 2019/20 season of New Stuff will run on the first Sunday of each month:
6 October 2019, 3 November 2019, 1 December 2019, 5 January 2020, 2 February 2020, 1 March 2020, 5 April 2020, 3 May 2020, 7 June 2020, 5 July 2020
Our next evening will take place at 7pm on 6 October 2019, featuring:
A World of Light by Joe Lucking
The Queen’s Silver Jubilee 1977. Roy tops the bill at the street party then elopes to Rhyl with the love of his life Phyllis. Fast Eddie and his bride Rose move into their new home and Maggie a Shakespearian actor performs for the Queen.
Twenty-five years later, the eve of the Golden Jubilee, Roy contemplates suicide, Eddie has finished work to care for his demented Rose, Maggie gets a chance to perform again and Phyllis wants rid of her latest fancy man.
The Three Little Pigs (And other Twisted Tails) by Aaron Millard
The Three Pigs -- one's blind, one's deaf and one's dumb, and that's how they die.
The Three Little Pigs (And other Twisted Tails) is a set of dark rhyming couplet fairytales encorporating physical comedy, puppetry, song, death and destruction, and cuddly toys.
