Fri 10 & Sat 11 Jan | Adult Bullying and its Consequences: Fact or Fiction?
In Sept 2013 writers from across the country submitted scripts based on research in which members of the general public shared their thoughts, opinions and experiences of adult bullying. These scripts were judged by a community panel made up of theatre professionals from across the West Midlands, NHS and community representatives. The successful scripts were developed and work-shopped by professional actors and directors and shown at an open forum theatre workshop/rehearsed reading attended by the general public. This provided the opportunity for the public to feedback their thoughts and opinions regarding the selected pieces. This feedback was consolidated in the further development and final rehearsing of the pieces ready for a public performance. The pieces will be shown at the Blue Orange Theatre on Friday 10th January 2014 at 7.30pm and Saturday 11th January 2014 at 2.30pm. The performances are free to attend and open to all.

Thu 30 Jan – Sat 8 Feb | Bouncers
It’s Friday night, it’s club night – time for Bouncers to come alive.

So come and meet the brutish bouncers, the boys on the pull, four girls out to have fun, the Hooray Henrys, the smooth talking DJ all set against the tatty, giltzy glamour, flashing lights and pulsating beat of the sweaty dance floor. The perfect entertainment for the post Christmas and New Year festivities. Tickets: £10 and £8.50 concessions. Group Bookings available. To book visit: http://www.blueorangetheatre.co.uk
