Belgrade Unplugged: In Pictures

Posted on 29 June 2015

Last week Belgrade Theatre Unplugged toured venues across the Midlands, from pubs to castles, delivering extracts of forthcoming Belgrade productions.

The professional cast performed rehearsed readings of four plays including Crush, a new musical by Kath Gotts and Maureen Chadwick, The Silver Sword, based on the children’s book by Ian Serraillier, Vampomime, a festive comedy horror by Nick Walker and The Sisterhood, a translation of Moliere’s Les Femmes Savantes. Each of these extracts were performed with limited rehearsal and script in hand, giving audiences the chance to see these productions in their early stages.

There were also performances of Jackanooni Tales, a piece of new writing born out of the Belgrade’s Critical Mass programme for writers from Black Asian and Minority Ethnic Backgrounds. At selected venues, we were also treated to previews from the Belgrade’s Youth Theatre shows created for the July Festival of Theatre by and for Young People. This included an extract from The Impossible Language of the Time by our Senior Youth Theatre and Somewhere to Belong by our Asian Youth Theatre.

Throughout the week, we travelled to all sorts venues, creating an unusual backdrop for live theatre. This included Nicholas Chamberlaine Almshouses in Bedworth, The Parkridge Centre at Brueton Park in Solihull, Coombe Abbey, The Merchants Inn in Rugby, Fargo Village, Kenilworth Castle and The Old Grammar School in Coventry.
