Belgrade Theatre Unplugged 'Unpacked'
With summer well and truly in the air, it’s time to stock up on the sun cream and pack your picnic baskets for the return of Belgrade Theatre Unplugged from Sat 20 – Sat 27 June.
Building on the great success of Unplugged 2013 and 2014, this year’s event will see the Belgrade theatre leave its home to visit a host of exciting new locations across Coventry and Warwickshire, giving both new and existing audiences a rare opportunity to preview the Belgrade Theatre’s programme of forthcoming work in production.
Rehearsed readings will take place in a series of unique settings around Coventry and Warwickshire, which this year include the stunning Kenilworth Castle, Nicholas Chamberlaine Almshouses, Bedworth, Coombe Abbey Hotel, The Warwickshire Wildlife Trust’s Parkridge Centre in Brueton Park, Solihull, The Merchants Inn, Rugby, Coventry’s new creative quarter –* Fargo Village* – and the newly refurbished Old Grammar School, Coventry.
As part of this year’s event, audiences can look forward to rehearsed readings from our forthcoming production of Crush – a sizzling new musical comedy by Maureen Chadwick and The Silver Sword, based on the much-loved children’s novel by Ian Serraillier. There will also be the opportunity to preview this year’s alternative B2 Xmas show, Vampomime – a fangtastic festive comedy written by Coventry playwright Nick Walker plus, looking ahead to 2016, we’ll be previewing our new comedy, The Sisterhood by Moliere.
Ahead of this year’s events, we caught up with Artistic Director Hamish Glen and ‘Unplugged’ Co-ordinator David Jane to find out more about what’s in store.
