A celebration of womanhood and the experiences that have shaped our leads, writers Rhiannon Owens and Nick Maynard present Jam Tart/Lemon Kurd – two monologues delving into the relatable, offering up space to connect.
Officially established in November 2014 by co-founders Tessa Hart and Rebecca Pryle, The Bread and Roses Pub Theatre, based in Clapham, has continued to fulfil its commitment of supporting new writing and emerging theatre companies and artists. Having received a 2020 commendation for ‘Pub Theatre of the Year’ from the London Pub Theatre Awards and an award from The International Centre for Women Playwrights Award three years in a row (2015, 2016 and 2017), the venue has proven just how vital the work they do is. Currently under the leadership of Artistic Director Velenzia Spearpoint and due to stage the sixth edition of the Clapham Fringe Festival, taking place from the 22nd September until 10th October, the Bread and Roses Pub Theatre tell us more about what to expect from this year’s event!
I and the Village is a play about some kind of centre, in which people are living, or being kept, it is never really clear. Three women live in one room, and eventually, they all leave. And that’s pretty much it; on the surface, this concept has enormous scope to delve into the tension and interpersonal relationships in such an intense space.
