Theatre Shows at Theatr Brycheiniog
March at Theatr Brycheiniog is busy this year, with something on almost every evening and a wide
variety of workshops throughout the days! What really stands out this month in Theatr Brycheiniog’s
high quality programme is the exciting pieces of theatre and drama, from award winning theatre
companies from around the UK and the world. There’s nothing quite like the magic of live theatre;
with talented actors and mind-blowing sets transporting you into a completely different world right
before your eyes. Theatre has the fantastic ability to allow us to escape reality while reflecting on
everyday issues that affect us all; from love, death, parenthood, racism and so much more. But don’t
just take our word for it, see for yourself and get whisked with Theatr Brycheiniog’s fantastic line-up
of moving, thought provoking and charming theatre.
Peeling (14 th Mar) follows a triad of performers, Alpha, Betty and Coral as they await their brief
moment in the spotlight. From award winning playwright Kaite O’Reilly, this touching performance
explores the complex relationships between women, their bodies and children against a backdrop of
man-made conflict. At times riotously funny, insults, recipes and stories are shared about mothers
and children and why we never seem to remember our hard-learned lessons of war. With
interwoven British Sign Language and audio descriptions peeling subverts the typical theatre
traditions, resulting in a thoroughly refreshing experience.
We all know the story of Pinocchio (19 th Mar), a disobedient, mischievous child, who is at the same
time naïve... Really naïve! As part of the Opening Doors Festival the internationally renowned
puppet theatre company Arad Goch uses paper and wood, puppetry, live action and music are to
create an enthralling production, taking us into the imagination of a child-puppet. This heart-
warming production will delight children and adults alike, and invites us to reflect on values such as
education, graft, responsibility and sincerity.
Pipeline Theatre, known for indelible characters and breath-taking production values, present Drip
Drip Drip (23 rd Mar), a love letter to the NHS. Following cancer patient Professor David Jeffs, a
disgraced racist academic, and his ethnically diverse care team Drip Drip Drip will tackles difficult
subjects with grace and humour, taking you on a break-neck, darkly comic and taboo-busting
journey through an NHS phantasmagoria.
