'So, what's it like round here?'
The unheard, unbelievably true story of a girl called Maya; forever thirteen, forever on the move.
Funny, fearless and frightening, Transporter explores themes of identity, difference, conflict, and what it means to come or not come from somewhere.
We meet Maya on the threshold of a new house in an ordinary city. From this everyday moment an epic story is woven, spanning decades and continents. Maya is both ordinary and extraordinary; schoolgirl, time traveller, shaman. Tales of classroom conflicts, flights across deserts, ice cream dreams and thwarted revolutions weave together, and the local and the global, the personal and political collide.
Transporter was developed through Theatr Iolo's artist development programme, Platfform and was born out of conversations with young people from the city of Newport, South Wales.
Tickets - £12.25, concessions - £10.25

Remember P.E. kit. Cancel Free Trial. Call mum. Everyone writes instructions to their future selves. But what if the future starts writing back?
Rosy Carrick has to build a time machine – because her future self has already done so and is now stuck 100 years in the past… Thus begins a complex and original blend of science, Schwarzenegger and self-determination as Rosy attempts to rewrite history and save herself. Winner of The Infallibles Award for Theatrical Excellence and Brighton Fringe’s Best New Play Award 2018, Passionate Machine is a playful, intelligent and searingly honest story about obsession, salvation and finding yourself – literally.
