Thu 19 - Sun 22 Oct Appetite presents ROUNDABOUT by Paines Plough

Details

Following the summer success of The Big Feast 2017, local arts programme Appetite, led by New Vic Theatre, is bringing another season of exciting new shows to Stoke-on-Trent this autumn, in unique pop-up venue, Roundabout by Paines Plough.

Paines Plough is the UK’s national theatre of new plays and Roundabout is the world’s first ‘pop-up, plug-and-play theatre’ which flatpacks into a lorry and pops up all over the country touring world class new writing for the stage.

On its third visit to Stoke-on-Trent, and as part of a national tour across the country, Roundabout returns to the city from 19 to 22 October with a line-up of superb new shows for Stokies to enjoy, this time in a brand new location outside the newly built No. 1 Smithfield in City Centre Hanley.

Direct from a sold out run at the Edinburgh Fringe, Black Mountain by Brad Birch is a tense edge-of-your-seat thriller about betrayal and forgiveness following a couple who run away to an isolated house to try and save their relationship. Out of Love by the award winning Elinor Cook is a funny and tender tale of friendship, love and rivalry told over thirty years. Larger than life story of family, friends and fitting in, family show How To Be a Kid by Sarah McDonald-Hughes follows 12 year-old carer Molly and features dancing, chocolate cake and an epic car chase. Following their premieres at the Edinburgh Fringe all three headline shows have received superb national reviews, being championed by The Guardian and Time Out magazine.

This year not only does Roundabout feature three new headline plays but will also include comedy with stand up from TV’s Hardeep Singh Kohli as seen on The One Show. Plus, there’ll be performance from Staffordshire University’s Performing Arts students, in powerful curtain raiser Almost Nothing, and many more events to be announced very soon.

The shows all take place at:
Roundabout pop-up Theatre
Outside 1 Smithfield
Leonard Coates Way
Hanley
ST1 4FA

Rebecca and Paul are running away. Away from memories and mistakes. They’re trying to save their relationship. They need time and space. An isolated house in the country is the perfect place to work things out. They set themselves rules: they have to be honest, they have to listen and they have to be fair.

But you can’t run forever. Especially when you’re being followed.

Black Mountain is a tense psychological thriller about betrayal and forgiveness by winner of the Harold Pinter Commission Brad Birch.

OUT OF LOVE By Elinor Cook - Friday 20 October 7.30pm, Sunday 22 October 2pm.

http://www.appetitestoke.co.uk/whatson/out-dash-of-love

Lorna and Grace do everything together. They share crisps, cigarettes and crushes. That's what happens when you're best friends forever.

But when Lorna gets a place at University, and Grace gets pregnant, they suddenly find themselves in starkly different worlds.

Can anything bridge the gap between them?

A tale of friendship, love and rivalry over thirty years from award-winning playwright Elinor Cook.
