Drama in the Albert Room

Lincs Inspire Arts and Libraries Development are delighted to be working with Breakwater Theatre Company and New Perspectives Theatre Company to bring a mixed programme of work to the Albert Room at Cleethorpes Library. This varied programme has been made possible thanks to grant funding from Arts Council England Grants for the Arts and Arts Libraries Fund and Heritage Lottery Funding.

Breakwater Theatre Company in partnership with New Perspectives and Lincs Inspire present two brand new plays - Andy Mosely's 'Make-Up' and Byron Pratt's 'Death Regs'.

'Make-up' is a one-man-show about a drag queen named Lady Christina. As she removes her make-up she tranforms into her alter ego Chris. As Chris looks into the mirror he sees his father looking back at him. 'Make-up' provides us with an insight into a world few of us will recognise and explores the complexities of identity, family and self.

'Death Regs' is a comic drama set in the near future where those who enjoy a less than healthy lifestyle are punished by the State and denied access to health care. We dig deep into the human psyche and wonder if this three-hander is getting a little too close to current affairs for comfort.
 
Both Andy and Byron were the winners of a Scratch night competition held earlier in the year, and thanks to funding from Arts Council England and mentoring from Jayne Williams of New Perspectives, have seen their scripts turned into complete productions, which will premiere in the Albert Room.

Breakwater presents its last show of the year entitled “Winner Stays On”. It comprises of four short plays featured over our two scratch nights in February and March this year. These were the four most popular runners up who were unlucky not to win the full commission but were deemed worthy of a second showing. The plays will be competing against each other for a further cash prize. The plays were chosen by audience vote and come from as far afield as New Zealand.
