“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.

“I was young. I was a bit stupid. We all were.”
London, 2017. Anything goes if you can afford it. James, a photographer, is struggling to tell Daniel, his banker boyfriend that he can’t get work. Daniel is finally out of the closet, but can’t talk about his feelings. Frank wants James and will pay for it, but doesn’t want his wife to know. Olivia just wants to be noticed. What is the true cost of living in the 21st century?
