Upcoming Shows

POWER OF INVENTION – Postponed

BOLDtext are heading to Soho House, home of Matthew Boulton, the Brummie industrialist who bragged of selling “what all the world desires to have – POWER.”

Our site-specific, science-specific show will tell the story of ‘Mr B’, his family, his household, and his fellow revolutionaries in the Lunar Society. Find out more HERE.

Open DOOR

COMMON WEALTH – Postponed

We’re returning to the Birmingham Rep with another evening of topical, fast-response short plays.

With the Commonwealth Games coming to Birmingham in 2022, we’re looking at the true meaning of the word: its history, its contradictions and its relevance in the COVID, BLM world. Watch this space!

Past Shows

OUR STORY SO FAR

Over twenty evenings of new plays at the Birmingham Rep, a promenade show set in a Victorian prison that was so popular people actually wanted to go back to jail, a theatrical walking tour of Digbeth revealing our most private memories…

We’ve done a lot since we started working together. Find out more HERE.
