Fresh Voices 2023
13 Apr 23 to 15 Apr 23
Fresh Voices is a celebration of new writing. From 13 to 15 April 2023 and over two performances, we will be premiering four one act plays and two monologues written by members of our own Wordsmiths INK writers’ group.
GET STUFFED by Andrew Connolly
Directed by John Cocks-Evans
A Tale of Life, Love and Taxidermy . Taxidermist Ted's long-suffering assistant D'reen has organised evening classes to bring in much needed extra income. Will Rupert, Anne, Steve and David master the art of taxidermy? Why is Ted obsessed with his cellar? Will Ted reciprocate D'reen's feelings? Who is Oswald? A black comedy, not for the faint-hearted.
FEUD FOR LIFE by Sophie Marie
Directed by Sophie Marie
Cecilia wants an abortion. Tim does not. In a future where they must agree or go through the courts, the unhappy couple find themselves in front of a judge and jury (the audience) to decide the fate of the foetus.
OVERLOOKED by Jane Martin
Directed by Quina Chapman
On the surface Audrey and Jack are poles apart, dig a bit deeper and they're not so very different, but can they overcome their preconceptions to forge a genuine friendship?
This 45 minute play uses dialogue and performance poetry to cast a spotlight on issues of disability and homelessness.
Overlooked is premiering at GBT prior to appearing at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August.

Directed by Jane Martin
The action follows the life and loves of actress Gloria Birch from her first leading role until the end of her long and illustrious career.

THE COLD WITHIN by Tony Tibbenham
