FAGIN

Tuesday 9 November 2021 at 7.30pm

Tickets - £14.25, Ages 15 to 26 - £5

Written and directed by Simon Downing

Produced by Kick In The Head

Dickens failed to provide a backstory to Fagin, so who was he and who was the real man that Dickens based his character on?

Join Fagin as he reviews his situation during his final night inprison before being hanged. As madness envelops him he is ‘visited’ by some oldacquaintances.

Find out who he really was and how he ended up as one of the best known, yet unknown, of Dickens' characters.

“This powerful new play gives a fresh twist on Dicken’s criminal Fagin.”

Think you know Fagin? Think again.

“All three actors in the roles of Fagin (Keith Hill), Bill (Giles Shenton) and Nancy (Georgia Butt) deliver impeccable performances. In the centre of it all, the audience is captivated by Fagin’s diverse, manipulative and complex character.”

The Reviews Hub

“It is a powerful piece of work….it deserves to become an eventual classic.

The set is simple, the themes (of love, greed, deception, betrayal, regret and retribution) universal, the subtle interplay between the three characters intense and the background (Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist) so familiar that this small masterpiece could well be a theatrical staple.” You would be a fool to yourself to miss it.”

FLY HALF (Ages 14+)

Friday 12 November 2021 at 7.30pm

Tickets -£13.25, concessions - £11.25

A father. A son. A club. A Town. A game. Fly Half.

Fly Half is a new play with original songs that tells the tale ofa rugby playing steel worker from South Wales. Set in an industrial town, this play is a celebration of working class families who head out to the match each week, stand pitch side with pride, supporting their local team. A lyrical hymn to one man's passion for his family, his town and his beloved game. Fly Half isa story of love, loss, community and sport, that rages against the beige of modern life.

Fly Half was awarded Critic’s Choice of 2018 by British Theatre Guide and BritishTheatre.com

‘It is beautifully written—an extended poem, a free verse epicutilising the alliterative tricks and phrasing of Dylan Thomas to provide arich, aural experience: “him, battered and bruised and beaming”. Fly Half deftly charts rugby’s metamorphosis from the old-style punch of the '60s, '70s and '80s to the professionalism and perfect physiques of the modern game.’

British Theatre Guide


“Welsh pride and passion, the mythology of rugby and the reality of working class life.
Lagden’s script is collieries deep”

POSSIBLE - National Theatre Wales (Ages 14+)

By Shôn Dale-Jones

Friday 26 November 2021 at 7.30pm

Tickets - £15.25, concessions - £13.25

Shôn Dale-Jones’ new show was going to be all about love. But what do you do when you’re writing a show all about love, and everything goes dark? You find the courage to tell a new story.

Possible is a playful, honest and heartfelt piece of storytelling that blurs reality with a kaleidoscopic dreamscape of animation and film, underscored with original live music.

“Perfectly judged, unabashedly authentic and vulnerably autobiographical”

★★★★
