So, we've received a lot of enquiries regarding Assemble Fest, but the top 'Q' that you guys want us to 'A' has got to be "Which theatre companies are involved?"
Well, we're delighted to say that we can now officially announce the seven theatre companies that will be presenting new and exciting work down Newland Avenue on Saturday 3rd May, so without further ado...
COMPANY: Apus Productions
SHOW: C.S.I. (Crap Scene Investigation)
Something heavy has gone down on Newland Avenue. What has happened? Who is responsible? But more importantly, who is going to clean it up?
COMPANY: Brick by Brick
Danny and Mark are two children who love to play. Mark spends his time on his video games and Danny enjoys playing with toys. But are the two so different? Join in with the fun and take part in this interactive insight into the way that we play.
COMPANY: The History Troupe
SHOW: Oppy Wood
Tommy is back from war a changed man. Not only his pals died at Oppy Wood in 1917; his homecoming explodes like a bomb back home. Nothing can be the same.
COMPANY: Park Bench Theatre
In a world where currency is traded in time, there are some delicious choices to be made with how you spend it. Make, Do and Play with storytellers on the Avenue as a surprising secret and true tale unfolds. Three extraordinary and intimate experiences in three secret locations down Newland Avenue, where Park Bench invite you to simply come and share some time out with us.
COMPANY: Single Story
Cutting, curling and confessions are all in a day's work for stylist Jackie. But one particular client's problems open up a world of undreamed-of possibilities. This site-specific play contains original songs.
COMPANY: Theatre on the Edge
SHOW: Film Noir at the Monica
Ghosts of film noir walk the old Monica Cinema, now the Piper Club. Philip, the night security guard, whiles away his boring shifts by watching DVDs of Bogart and Bacall films. Then one night his fantasy world is rudely interrupted by Eddie, a young burglar.
COMPANY: Rachael Abbey and Lizi Perry (pictured)
SHOW: Skirts, Shirts, and Vintage Dresses
A dress can define you. It can be your hiding place, your battle cry, your badge of status, your blanket of grief, your dream of a new you… Or maybe it was just on sale. Two women explore their own lives, as they reminisce over the memories held in these scraps of fabric.
Are you excited? We certainly are! Tickets will soon be on sale, and remember that there'll be a discount if you book to see all seven. More information is on the way so stay tuned!
