Directed by Montserrat Gili (Dende Collective) and with dramaturgy from US hip-hop pioneer Will Power, A Night On The Tiles is described as a unique and ground-breaking combination of spoken word, dark comedy and theatre. The play is bought to the stage by Penultimate Theatre - heralded in The Sunday Times as a company to watch in 2010.
Pen-ultimate is a diverse collective of nationally and internationally recognised poets, actors, MCs and playwrights –Ben Mellor, Ali Gadema (aka Frisko Dan), Samira Arhin-Acquaah (aka Lucidity) and Martin Stannage (aka Visceral).
Pen-ultimate met at Contact as part of Contact’s Young Actors Company. They made their debut as a company at the 2007 Edinburgh Festival and have since performed in theatres and festivals including Contact, Kendal Calling and The Big Chill. A Night On The Tiles is their first full-scale production.
A Night On The Tiles at runs at Contact from 2 - 6 November and returns from 9 - 13 November.
