ALMOST BECKETT-LIKE IN ITS SURREAL STYLE"
- A YOUNGER THEATRE ON BAG OF BEARD
WE ARE BAG OF BEARD.
" BAG OF BEARD SHOW THEMSELVES TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF CONTEMPORARY THEATRE WITH THIS SIMPLE, YET PROFOUNDLY IMPORTANT PLAY "
- THEATRE WEEKLY ON BAG OF BEARD
BAG OF BEARD are storytellers, first and foremost. Tall tales or short, articulate or delirious, rambling or fleeting - we tell stories.
We create darkly funny, poetic, abstract, surreal and minimalist theatre. In 'Bath' we crafted a dark homage to the works of Harold Pinter.
With 'Renaissance Men' we combine elements of spoken word poetry with an original soundtrack, to create a biting new satire.
Through original words & original music, our aim is to create a national ensemble, using the best new writing and music from across the nation, in a highly collaborative, grassroots theatre process.
WE HAVE IDEAS AND INK,
STORIES TO TELL,
WORDS TO WEAVE
A blank page. A guitar. A pen.
Notebooks. Pages. Plectrums.
Quills. Waistcoats. Shoes. A bag of detachable facial hair.
A group of actors and the clothes they stand up in.
Tales to tell.
