Pygmalion

One flower girl. Two experts. Free lessons. Six months. Duchess required.

Over one hundred years after it was written, a radical new co-production explores one of the most celebrated comedies of the 20th Century, Bernard Shaw’s Pygmalion.

‘The science of speech. That’s my profession. I can place any man within six miles. I can place him within two miles in London. Sometimes within two streets.’

Witness the transformation of Eliza Doolittle in a world where we can be digitally altered within seconds. Through video and sound technology, director Sam Pritchard’s fearless new staging interrogates class identity and social mobility in Britain today and asks us - how much do our voices still define who we are?

Junkyard

It’s 1979, rubbish is on the streets of Lockleaze, and growing up is tricky for Fiz, Higgy, Ginger and Flip. Rick remembers what it’s like to be a teenager. So when he decides to build a junk playground, he’s pretty sure he has the charisma to get a bunch of reluctant kids involved. He’s wrong. Who’d want to join in building a f***ing playground?

Inspired by the true story behind the Lockleaze playground known ‘The Vench’ established over 30 years ago and still operating today, Junkyard is a story about Bristol, for Bristol from BAFTA Award-winning writer and Bristolian Jack Thorne (Skins, Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) and Evening Standard Award-winning director Jeremy Herrin (Wolf Hall). Featuring a score by Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love), this brilliantly honest and witty new musical is a coming-of-age story about friendship and standing up for what matters.

A Co-Production with Bristol Old Vic, Rose Theatre Kingston & Theatr Clwyd
