Lost - an evening of new writing in Bristol

Published by: G.D. Mills on 10th May 2017 | View all blogs by G.D. Mills

This week the Alma Theatre Tavern hosts a trio of new plays from three award winning writers. OK, two award-winning writers and a compulsive liar.

'City' by Pippa Gladhill is a hard-boiled tale of noir fantasies, improbable chess moves and unrequited love. Homeless gumshoe Frank faces his toughest case yet: a missing canine, a demolition site and a hostile security force. But he always has a plan...

'The Pasta Machine' by Andy Alderson is set in the flaming wreckage of a relationship. As Poppy arrives to collect her things from Tim's flat, she finds him drunk and primed for battle. Acrimony, betrayal and kitchenware feature heavily in a play that critics are describing as "New" and "20-25 minutes long".

'Dummy' by Andrzej Wawrowski is a twisted comedy-drama about unhinged children's entertainer Dennis Turp. From humble beginnings on the local circuit, Dennis has taken his show – with 'co-star' Charlie Chimpington – to the top. Now, as America awaits, the pressure is on. With a Machiavellian girlfriend, an ineffectual agent and a toy monkey with ambitions of his own, Dennis is cracking up.

Like Mr Tumble directed by The League of Gentlemen. Welcome to the dark side of light entertainment.

They will be performed at the Alma Theare Tavern on the 11th, 12th and 13th of May. Visit the website here for tickets and more details:
