25 August 2015

We are delighted to be supporting these exciting theatre companies through our talent development programme FORGE! Don’t miss out on their current productions…

Metta Theatre

Metta Theatre’s latest production Mouthful is directed by Poppy Burton-Morgan. The cast includes Alisha Bailey, Robert Hands, Harry Lister Smith and Dona Croll (who also starred in English Touring Theatre’s Twelfth Night last year!)

‘MOUTHFUL is a darkly comic and at times heartbreaking response to the global food crisis from six of the world’s leading dramatists in partnership with six world-renowned scientists.’

Dawn State Theatre Company

Directed and Produced by Dan Coleman, Dawn State’s production The Wonderful Discovery of Witches in The County of Lancaster is performed by Amy Blair, Dan Nicholson and Christopher Birks.

‘It’s 1615, and two men are on a mission to arm their countrymen against a plague of devilish outsiders. Until now their chief weapon has been Jennet Device, youngest of the Pendle Witches, the girl whose testimony condemned her entire family to the noose. But now Jennet has grown up, her eyes are starting to open, and tonight heads will roll.’

‘Chilling and Heartbreaking’ (The Scotsman) ****

Motor Theatre

Produced by Motor Theatre, written by 2015 Olivier Nominee James Fritz and directed by Thomas Martin, Ross and Rachel is performed by Molly Vevers.

‘A dark and uncompromising new play about romance, expectation and mortality, Ross & Rachel tells the mind-bending, heartbreaking story of what happens when a couple that was always meant to be together, gets together. And stays together.’

‘Ross & Rachel takes a fictional couple, and makes them look like a real couple that’s spent too much time watching fictional couples’ (The Independent) ****
