BPC @ The Yard

Tue 10th – Thu 12th Mar 2015


“A microfestival of new writing hosted by The Bristol Playwrights Collective at The Yard.”





Bristol Playwrights Collective


With three plays over three days this March, we are showcasing the talent of the Bristol Playwrights Collective, a group of students who meet monthly to discuss ideas, tips and responses to contemporary scripts. With pieces ranging in style and subject, this is the perfect opportunity to get a taste of some fresh new writing!

Tickets are £4 per show OR £10 for a ticket to all three.



'Drunk' by J. Rayner

People cope differently with bad news. And the ones who think they cope the best are generally wrong. Jeanie and Marina are two old school friends, re­united by unfortunate circumstances. Their clashes over the course of one particularly grim Sunday are by turns both dark and hilarious, but never lose sight of empathy for the worst parts in all of us.


'The Industrial Theatre' edited by Kane Walpole

'The Industrial Theatre' explores the monotony and repetition of everyday life, and the patterns that emerge and dissolve as we each try to navigate our way through the world. This experimental theatre piece has been written by six of our members as a group, and workshopped with the actors in truly collective style.


'An Elegy for David' by Jon Berry

Losing someone brings about thoughts and feelings that are alien to you, but it is something that is felt by everyone at some point in their lives. The voices in this piece draw you into intensely personal experiences, and leave you with a sense that you’ve intruded upon something private. 'An Elegy for David' is a piece about process, giving insight into the murky mind of someone in grief.

Admission: £4
