A one-woman-science-comedy-music-show.  

Created and performed by Welsh actress and singer Carys Eleri. Lovecraft (Not the Sex Shop in Cardiff) is a brutally honest and witty show about the neuroscience of love and loneliness.  

Drawing from her own experiences, Carys combines smart and ludicrously funny songs with heartfelt tales, taking you on a journey to discover how love works, why it makes us do crazy things and why hugging is the answer.

National Theatre Wales’ and Quarantine’s extraordinary new show invites its audience into a conversation about language with performer Jonny Cotsen – a performance built out of a fascination with what happens when we try to talk about how to live together. 

It’s inspired by the theatricality of language lessons, and discussions with migrants who learn English for all kinds of reasons. For business, for pleasure, for survival, to take part, to pass the test…

 

Dr Sally Austen in conversation with Bella Bathurst: Sound

Sound draws on this extraordinary experience, exploring what it is like to lose your hearing and – as Bella eventually did – to get it back, and what that teaches you about listening and silence, music and noise. She investigates the science behind deafness, hearing loss among musicians, soldiers and factory workers, sign language, and what Deaf people know about these subjects that hearing people do not.

THIS IS THE PERSON I AM NOW. IT’S THE PERSON I WANT TO BE, SHOULD HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME. WE GOT DARK, SOPHIE. THINGS GOT DARK, AND I… I’M BETTER NOW. I’M IN A BETTER PLACE.”
Once our lives are touched by tragedy, can we ever truly move on? Sophie and Tom’s relationship fell apart in the aftermath of a catastrophe. Four years on and as they come face to face once again, the aftershocks of that fateful day can still be felt.

Tremor is a play about now. It’s about how we choose to see things and live our lives in a world riven with tension, anxiety and division. This thrilling new play by Brad Birch, the first recipient of the Harold Pinter Commission, promises an intense evening at the theatre

“THERE’S NOTHING WORSE THAN DECORATIONS AFTER CHRISTMAS. THAT’S THE WAY I SOMETIMES USED TO FEEL PUTTING MY CLOTHES ON IN THE MORNING.”
Dublin, Christmas Eve. John, an alcoholic undertaker, is confronted by the ghosts of his past. Can he salvage something from the life he himself wrecked?

Conor McPherson is not only one of the most acclaimed playwrights working today, he is one the most compassionate. McPherson’s characters are people we can believe in and relate to. In Dublin Carol, he creates a deeply moving account of a man struggling to face up to his past, present and future.

This new production of this modern masterpiece by Matthew Xia, one of the UK’s brightest directing talents, promises a highly emotional experience in the intimacy of the Sherman Studio.
