Bold Text present DOUBLED UP at The REP – 8pm Monday October 26th
Bold Text Playwrights return to The REP with double helpings on Monday 26th October with Doubled Up – new writing from Bold Text members Stephen Jackson and Nicola Jones.
Cold Cuts by Nicola Jones
A dark rural tale about fading dreams and desperate measures, ‘Cold Cuts’ promises plenty of twists and turns along the way:
‘When three old friends meet at a remote hillside café, a seemingly innocent reunion takes an unsettling turn as it becomes clear the setting holds a dark history that none can escape’.
ellaYella – The Poppera by Stephen Jackson
Guaranteed to get your toes tapping, with plenty of laughs along the way, ‘ellaYella – The Poppera’ is a play within a concert. Featuring Emma Skipp as ellaYella, described as ‘a one woman Gospel Choir’ by Radio 1’s Jo Whiley.
‘Will ellaYella and Joe Lonely ever get together – or will she sail away on the Queen of All Heartache and drown in the bay? Can you tell a story inside a pop concert? Come along and find out.’
Come along and catch these two work-in-progress extracts at 8pm on Monday October 26th as part of The REP’s Open Door season. Tickets are FREE but should be pre-booked on 0121 236 4455 or online at: http://www.birmingham-rep.co.uk/event/open-door-2015/
