A Rehearsed Reading
Sherman Cymru Studio
Saturday 24th October, 4pm
This Saturday 24th October at 4pm, Empty Deck present Ibsen Award Winner Fredrik Brattberg's 2014 play Winterreise in the Sherman Cymru Studio.
Don't miss the opportunity to see this contemporary Norwegian play presented for the first time on the British stage.
Winterreise is presented as a rehearsed reading alongside the main house production of A Doll's House, and ruthlessly exposes what might be missing in us as mothers and fathers, telling a quietly distressing story of two new parents who can’t step off the train they’ve embarked on.
Cast: Catrin Morgan, Owain Gwynn, Joanna Griffiths
Directed by Kay Michael
Co-Produced with The Other Room as part of Season Scandinavia
COSMIC FEAR OR THE DAY BRAD PITT GOT PARANOIA
By Christian Lollike (Denmark)
A Scratch Performance
The Other Room Theatre
Friday 30th October, 7.30pm
LA is filled with traffic jams under heavy smog, trees are drifting under floods in Bangladesh and in China incinerators are burning holes in the ozone layer. Brad Pitt fears the future. Brad is a man of action and he’s not here to entertain, but to make a difference. Brad embarks on the great universal love project: to Save Planet Earth.
With video artist Jorge Lizalde and dramaturge Tracy Harris
As I said these are two really exciting performances of work never before seen in Wales. TEAM members keep an eye on your inboxes for a great ticket offer.
