Reliably informed

Building on their already sterling reputation for supporting and nurturing up and coming theatrical talent, Alphabetti Theatre welcomes NEST Fest on Wednesday 12th-Thursday 13th June, a compilation programme of productions programmed by Pillar Theatre Company.

Eight shows will take place over the two nights, with the North East’s finest recent graduates showcasing their work.

The programme is diverse, with themes running the gamut from love stories to explorations of the complexities of race, religion and gender: Cherry is a comedic slumber party filled with sexual liberation and expression; Reflections takes dementia as its thought-provoking subject, as a woman’s dementia brings back painful family secrets; And For That We Apologise is a musical comedy about depression and male mental health issues; From Snowflake To Avalanche is described as the “quiz show from hell”; Dirty Great Love Story focuses on the one epic love story that has the capacity to change lives; Greg Urbaitis’ Uncovered looks at the strains of a relationship in jeopardy; spoken word and performance poetry is put to use in Poetryslap, exploring race, gender, religion and the human experience; and in Good Wee Girl, Charlotte Daisy White discovers the cost of fame.

With both nights priced on a ‘pay what you feel’ basis, and with so much exciting emerging talent and diverse stories on offer, NEST Fest promises a cracking couple of nights of entertainment.
