“CPT has got plenty of interest going on at the moment, including this one night showing of an evening of radical new work from under-represented artists and companies. It is curated by the brilliant Barrel Organ and if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, then look out later in December for more-Xmas works in progress from Will Dickie (The Rave Space) and Josh Coates and Ali Pidsley (Steve) and Sh!t Theatre’s Sing-a-Long-a-Muppets Christmas Carol which is back by popular demand.”
A scratch night curated by Barrel Organ; presenting experimental and non-traditional work from under-represented artists that specifically acknowledges the presence of the audience and plays with the ‘liveness’ of theatre.
Expect a night of bold, experimental and uncompromising work that tackles a wide range of issues, agendas and ideas.
