Big Brum presents


An extraordinary new play by Chris Cooper 

17th  Dec 2007 at 7.30 in the Ron Barber Studio Theatre

Rubble and dust. A room with a shattered window. A door without a wall. Inside a man watches and waits.

 “They’ll flatten everything. Paving the way for democracy.”

 In the distance a city burns; those who were able to have escaped. A young woman seeks refuge in the ruins. A soldier falters on the relentless march south. The siege is coming to an end and it’s time to pick up the pieces and move on to the next one.

Suitable for audiences aged 13+

Chris Cooper has worked in theatre-in-education and young people’s theatre since 1988. He has written twelve plays to date, including four for Theatr Powys’ national community tour of Wales . He has been Artistic Director of Big Brum since 1999.

Now in its 25th year, Big Brum has an international reputation for producing compelling and innovative new work.
