A pop-up theatre season of intimate plays is being presented in venues in and around Lichfield.
The talented Let Me In Presents will perform four plays in four venues using four directors – and all in four weeks!
Creative Director Chris Buckle explained the concept behind the productions: “We were thinking about the intimacy and honesty in which human relationships, and in particular, communication, is represented in theatre.
“To do justice to this theme, which includes very difficult aspects such as mental health, abuse, sexual infidelity and violence, we have created a team diverse across gender, culture, context, wealth and sexuality.”
Led by Chris, the team includes Martin Pritchard as Producer, Imogen Melhuish as Designer and Composer Maya Yenn.
The plays, dates and venues are:
Constellations by Nick Payne, directed by Richard Poynton, 10-14th August at 8.30pm at The Nurture Nest (Formerly M&S Food, Three Spires Precinct, Lichfield).
