Theatre West Present Picture This at The Alma TavernDate: 4 October 2011
Theatre West present … Picture This, an 11 week season of new plays at the Alma Tavern, Bristol from 28 September - 10 December 2011
In December 2010 Alison Comley, joint Artistic Director of Theatre West, travelled to Berlin and purchased 50 random black and white photographs not knowing who was in them nor how or when they were taken; photographs whose stories had been forgotten. She then challenged 45 of the South West’s best new writers to each create a script inspired by one of the pictures in her collection; to imagine a new story behind each image.
Theatre West is proud to present five brand new productions and 4 script-in-hand performances from nine of the South West’s most exciting writing prospects including Edson Burton (Children of Salt, 2010) and Steve Lambert (Showing The Monster, 2009) to be performed at the Alma Tavern over Theatre West’s 11 week season, Picture This.
Dorian’s Second Life
Sitting With Thistle
These 5 productions are presented alongside script-in-hand performances of 4 other plays that were shortlisted for Theatre West’s Picture This season:- Donkey Talent by Mark Shand (28 September); The Climbers by William House(29 September); You’re Going To Miss Me When I’m Gone by James Killick (30 September); and Three Women by Katriel Costello (1 October).
