Birmingham Repertory Theatre presents the Young REP Senior Company in
This Time
29 - 30 March

Every year they leave their mobiles at home, they haul the tents out of the attic or the garage, and pitch them on what is a sheep field the rest of year. The nine of them, drinking, smoking, laughing. But this year it's just the eight of them.
 
Louisa has to make tonight perfect. These festival nights are sacred, irreplaceable, and this is the last one. It has to go right. But Abigail died six months ago. Daniel's been acting strange and keeping secrets. Katie's getting wilder. Bobbie is the worst of all. Poor Bobbie. One night left to fix the hurt, there's no future otherwise. This time, this night, is all that's left.
 
Grief. Friendship. Second chances. Bring your wellies.

Revenger's Comedy

5 - 6 April

A hilarious comedy, disguised as a tragedy.

It's opening night and the play that Lucy has written, directed and poured her heart and soul into is about to open to a packed out audience of disengaged parents, evil stepfathers and nans. All she needs is for her mum to be in the audience, so she can be moved by Lucy's story and change her mind about her horrible new boyfriend and Lucy's soon-to-be step-dad.

However, the rest of the company have other ideas an, jilted by Lucy's casting decisions, a revolution is brewing among the chorus. Can Lucy's tragedy survive the literal staging of a coup, some serious method acting and a fame-hungry stage manager?

Birmingham Repertory Theatre presents the Young REP 18-25 Company in
Fear And Misery Of The Third Reich
12 - 13 July


It's Germany in the Thirties. Under the Nazi regime, fear and suspicion is flooding communities. But as the danger intensifies, so does the defiance.

 This production of Brecht's classic play explores the chilling notion that that similar movements could be happening today. The scenes are complemented with short verse written by Brecht and live music. Also included are rarely performed scenes, which Brecht omitted from initial performances, providing an added insight to this unforgettable work.
