Before and after a night that changed everything.
“Say you’re getting a bit frisky at the end of a night. With us you hop up on the pole and bust your moves. But they got none of that up the valleys. They want to pole dance, they’ve gotta go out into the street and do it round a street lamp. And that always causes ructions cos half of them worship electricity as a god so it’s like desecrating a holy shrine!” Gary Owen is one of Wales’ foremost playwrights and writer of the wildly successful Iphigenia in Splott at The National Theatre and the critically acclaimed Violence & Son at The Royal Court Theatre.
Join us for one of Owen's earlier works Love Steals Us From Loneliness, a powerful and darkly witty story about his hometown of Bridgend. Venture into the darker sides of life and be prepared to contemplate love, loss, grief, and whether you’re a “Townie” or “Valley Commando”?
