WHAT WE DO & WHY WE DO IT

New Plays for 2018

2018 - What’s it all about for us?

2018 looks like being another busy year for TWT. We are delighted to be working with regular clients again, as well as welcoming some new commissions. Watch this space for news of forthcoming projects on Captain Cook and St. George as well as an exciting new piece of theatre in Thetford.

This being the 100th anniversary of the partial enfranchisement of women, our play "Deeds Not Words" is being performed at several venues to celebrate this landmark moment in our political history. The play focusses on the stories of two ordinary women caught up in the movement and their experience of the preparations for one of the great Suffragette rallies. There are songs, poems and speeches from women and men, some famous, some not so, as they play their parts in the unfolding of a political revolution not all of them are in favour of.

2018 is also the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War. Our play "Letters Home" has been performed at many events commemorating the ordinary courage of those who were there, at home and in the trenches. It has proved an emotional and touching tribute to a very simple act - that of putting pen to paper to record your thoughts for people elsewhere. "Letters Home" has left audiences deeply moved from hearing words written 100 years ago being read aloud for the first time. It is our tribute to the actions, thoughts and hopes of "people like us" doing ordinary things in extraordinary circumstances a century ago. If you've not had the opportunity to see it, we heartily recommend it to you.

The performance dates are on our diary page.
