True confessions lead to trio of dramas

April 7, 2019

Here's an intriguing offering: Three plays for the price of one - well, playlets to be honest, but each one inspired by anonymous, true confessions made by three people who attended last year's Shop Front Festival.

  So, if you recognise yourself in one of the secrets laid bare at the Shop Front Theatre in Coventry's City Arcade between May 9 and 11th, Keep Very Quiet. 

  Under the general title Confessions, the pieces were commissioned by Chris O'Connell and Julia Negus, who run the Shop Front Theatre and wanted to offer a showcase to talented young writers in the CV postcode area.

  As a result New Project Theatre was founded by Charles Ingram who has directed each of the three pieces, which will be performed by early and mid-career professional actors.

  The first drama, Don't, Won't, Can't, is by Rosie Staniford and is the result of someone's confession to being in love with their best friend, but scared to tell them in case it leads to the end of their long-standing friendship.

  The second, FatCat, is by Rachael Mainwaring and involves a house move that leaves something nasty in the woodshed.

  Finally, there's Yes, by Alexander Millington, based on a man with the seemingly perfect life - wife, house, dog and beautiful baby. But how far will he go to get what he truly wants?

  Tickets cost £8.50 or £5 standing, and can be booked on www.newprojecttheatre.co.uk
