'BATH'
AS PART OF 'TWO SHORT STORIES'
THE BREAD & ROSES THEATRE

PRAISE FOR 'TWO SHORT STORIES':

 

Bath, written by Alexander Knott, follows two petty criminals, Sharkey (James Demaine) and Whitmore (Ryan Hutton) as they struggle to come up with money to satisfy their enigmatic boss, Mr Skinner (Joshua Nutbrown).

The writing in this piece is stunning. Knott writes with such pace and precision, it feels almost Beckett-like in its surreal style. Characters are often talking over each other, with hilarious use of repetition to emphasise the frantic nature of each situation.

The writing is also done justice by the acting performances. Particularly enjoyable is the chemistry between Hutton and Demaine. The scenes between the two are explosive and hilarious; and they give commanding and emphatic performances throughout. Nutbrown also gives a strong performance, confidently portraying his character with flair and panache. The set changes are slick, transforming the audience to a new environment seamlessly. It is a remarkably fast paced and enthralling piece, that has potential to be something special.

Bag of Beard Theatre Company show promise in Two Short Stories, producing an enjoyable evening. The vast differences between the two pieces display versatility as a company, showing that they can cover a wide range of different subject matters.

'TORN APART'
AS PART OF 'TWO SHORT STORIES'
THE BREAD & ROSES THEATRE

Inspired by the Royal Court model of two short plays, each their own individual story, either side of an interval, Bag of Beard curated 'Two Short Stories'.

'Torn Apart' follows two siblings who, having missed Christmas together, decide to celebrate it in July. 

But struggling with his recovery from drug addiction, Sam has a dark secret hidden behind the sofa, a baseball bat by the door and is dreading hearing a knock.

Exploring issues of drug addiction and recovery, class divides and how far we're willing to go for the ones we love, 'Torn Apart' was a hard hitting, yet warm piece of theatre.

'THE FOUR TRAVELLING PLAYERS'
 

An early tale, but one worth telling....

The wagon of roving troubadours, a gang of travelling players, ride up, unpack their trunks, and weave a world out of a suitcase...

'ON IT'
THIS IS NOT A HORROR STORY. JUST WATCH IT. 
THIS IS MY JOB.
THIS IS MY LIFE.
Boy Meets Girl. Girl Dumps Boy.
 
Four disconnected Londoners,
One Night Out.
You want, he gives.
Just ring....
