Sgript Cymru playwrights Lucy Gough and Antony Pickthall will be touring their own work around Wales in November in a co-production by Lupa Theatre Company and BDNC Theatre. Both writers have worked in recent years with Sgript Cymru and Lucy’s play Wolfskin is currently in development with the company.
Lucy’s theatre company, LUPA THEATRE (set up by Lucy and her partner, Duncan to tour new plays in Wales) is collaborating with Dublin’s BDNC Theatre to create their first co-production, HANG-GLIDING.
HANG-GLIDING is a double-bill of Lucy Gough’s CROSSING THE BAR, first produced to acclaim in 1994 and a new play by Antony Pickthall, THE STUNNING FLIGHT OF ARCHIBALD BONE. The co-production opens at The Pavilion Theatre, Dún Laoghaire on November 15 and then tours to Aberystwyth Arts Centre (November 20), Theatr Gwynedd, Bangor (November 22) and Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff (November 24 and 25).
HANG-GLIDING offers an exhilarating evening exploring the gap between life and death in contemporary and historical settings in a highly physical and visual style. In the surreal redemption drama, CROSSING THE BAR, a teenage remand prisoner attempts suicide. On the cusp of life and death, he encounters a young medieval nun. Trapped in a place called ‘Dread’, the boy discovers the power of the imagination. Baroque comic fantasy, THE STUNNING FLIGHT OF ARCHIBALD BONE tells the story of a charlatan inventor from the Industrial Revolution. Pursued by conned capitalists, he plans to redeem himself by taking flight above the grime on homemade wings.
