A Mouthful of Rhinestones


 Monday 8th January 2018, 8pm

A pay what you can BOLDtext show

Genius born in poverty, Prodigal of the Mississippi Delta; Adult suitor to a lovestruck teen…

It's Elvis' birthday and BOLDtext are presenting three short script-in-hand plays by Julia Wright, Helen Kelly and Vanessa Oakes, exploring how one musical genius unleashed a tidal wave of inspiration, obsession and exploitation.

In the absence of the King we have BOLDtext's very own Prince (of the mop and bucket) the talented (and mildly psychic) Ted Pigeon, who will be hosting the Xmas pressie swap, where we prove that one woman's unwanted bath bombs are another man's well, wanted bath bombs.  So bring all your unloved presents along and swap them for other people's!

Cucumber Writers


 Tuesday 9th January 2018, 8pm

Cucumber Writers is a collective of playwrights who produce shows based on connected themes, ideas and locations. They build spaces, programmes and opportunities for other artists and theatre makers to create work and reach audiences inside theatres and beyond.


Open Door gives The DOOR over to West Midlands based playwriting groups to have the space to test their new plays in front of invited audiences.

Curated, managed and produced by the groups themselves, this season of Open Door sees the space being claimed by the Cucumber Writers Group and the BOLDtext Playwrights. The Cucumber Writers Group grew out of The REP's Write Away playwriting programme, they meet regularly to share, make and develop new writing. BOLDtext Playwrights are eight West Midlands-based playwrights who collaborate to create more opportunities and platforms for their work.

For more information on the writers groups and the work they might present please contact the Cucumber Writers on or at and BOLDtext Playwrights on or at

For further details on the Open Door initiative and other new writing programmes at The REP please contact Lynette Dakin on
