Something different for the weekend (Westwood Studio Theatre)

Westwood Studio Theatre, Valley Bridge Parade, Scarborough.
23 June & 1 July at 7:30pm
Tickets £8.50 or £6.50 Concessions.

Journeyman Theatre Company are coming to Scarboroughwith “LIFE CHOICES”, an evening of theatre unlike anything seen locally for a long time.  Prepare to be stimulated, challenged, excited and entertained!

TONGUES, a beautifully crafted and evocative piece, sees actor Dan Welch and musician Ernest Acquah take us on a journey of voices.  Seventeen different characters (at least!) show us flashes of the most significant moments of their lives and deaths, challenging us to think about what is really important and maybe inspiring a newfound love of life.

TRIANGLE, by James Saunders (a contemporary and associate of Pinter and Ayckbourn is essentially a piece of experimental theatre.  With humour and adult themes Dan Welch takes us into the tortured mind of an actor without a script with hilarious and tragic results.  You won’t be sitting comfortably!

“For me, Saunders is one of the giants of British theatre.  Risky, Quirky and with wit that can flash like a kingfisher’s wing.  I’ve been lucky enough to work with all three creatives before.  Modesty, dedication and deep talent makes for a heavy brew.  Dan is quite simply my current favourite actor.  I’ve taught him at drama school and he’s one of the smartest risk takers on stage.  One day you might just mention you were there!”
