“I’ve been a revolutionary most of my life…Wales have always had the spirit of revolution in their blood…”

NATO Summit, 2014, Newport, Wales: Pippa is dazed, hungover and staging her own personal protest on the Coldra roundabout. This is her opportunity to trample down the fence, as she fights to put Wales on the centre of the global map, proving that even the smallest of voices can be heard amongst the political noise.

Golf Course War Machine poses the question of political identity in turbulent times, and asks what it means to be able to punch your fist high in the air, and fight for what you believe in.

Prior to a run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe, South Wales based No Boundaries Theatre/Theatr Dim Ffiniau make their London debut at The Hope Theatre, with this equal parts visceral, witty and moving one-woman play, performed by Melanie Stevens and written by Chris Harris, the recipient of Sherman Theatre’s Richard Carne Award for Writing.

Box Office opens at 7.00pm for cash sales and collection of pre-booked tickets. The performance lasts approximately 1 hour without interval. No re-admittance once the performance has commenced.

LATECOMERS MAY NOT BE ADMITTED. PLEASE ARRIVE IN GOOD TIME FOR THE START TIME OF 7.45PM.

Over 18s only. Due to pub licensing laws no one under the age of 18 is permitted into the building after 7pm.

Refunds are not available. In extreme circumstances tickets purchased may be exchanged for another performance if adequate written notice is provided.

 

odd man out

26 Jul to 12 Aug

Two beautiful stories from of people who don’t quite fit in.

Joe is a master storyteller like his dad, but when he tries to tell his own story he finds it difficult to keep on track.

Ralph is an elephant abroad. A reluctant Welsh hero who discovers unexpected love in the mountains of Hong Kong.

Vanbrugh’s 1697 comedy is relocated to a modern music festival in Marooned Theatre’s production where revellers drink, dance and get up to mischief… The Provoked Wife comes to The Hope Theatre after a sell-out run this summer. This is Restoration for a new generation.
