This Friday, the 26th at 7:30pm.
Come and enjoy a unique night of theatre, poetry and entertainment! The Bunbury Banter Theatre Company is hosting a series of bi-monthly evenings, in the Theatre Royal, Dumfries studio and bar, under the title: 'A Play, A Poet & A Pastry'.
The high-quality semi-staging of a new studio play with professional actors and presented alongside poetry written in response to the script and also performed during the event. Following this there are pastries, a Q&A and informal discussions with cast, audience and creatives involved in the project. PPP#3: 'Freckle' by Giles Conisbee starring Belle Jones as Aoife and Timothy Barrow as Stevie, with poetry written in response by JoAnne McKay.
Married, mortgaged and model parents, Stevie and Aoife's once recognizable world is now awash with guilt, pain and regret. As the gulf between them widens, reaching out to each other and bridging the chasm seems harder than simply slipping into the abyss. Freckle is a thought-provoking new play exploring one couple's attempt to overcome a fatal mistake and its devastating repercussions. It poses the terrifying question: is there a limit to love?
These evenings, taking place in Scotland’s oldest working theatre, promise to weave first-rate and engaging entertainment, alongside an informal, lively and social atmosphere; perfect for mingling and mulling over the theatrical offerings, for both audience and creatives alike.
A Play, A Poet and A Pastry at the Theatre Royal Dumfries is kindly supported by The Holywood Trust, DG Unlimited, Dumfries and Galloway Council, Dumfries And Galloway Arts Festival pastries from Marchbank Bakers and with props and set sourced by SHAX Charity Furniture Warehouse. All helping to bring this new, exciting and tastry addition to the Dumfries theatrical calendar. #dumfriestheatre #aplayapoetandapastry #theatreroyaldumfries #collaboration #multidiscipline #highqualitytheatre #newwriting
