Having established themselves as a theatre company “committed to good storytelling”, Threedumb Theatre have collaborated with provocative writer Stuart Crowther to bring his new play, I thought I might be Jet Li (but it turns out that I’m not), to The Mission Theatre as part of the Bath Fringe 2017.
Last summer, local actor Matthew Bromwich returned to Bath with new theatre company Threedumb Theatre, co-founded with Stephen Smith and Duncan Riches. He made his directorial debut with Stephen MacDonald’s Not About Heroes at The Mission Theatre, after a sell-out preview at The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
After tackling issues surrounding masculinity and male relationships during WW1 in Not About Heroes, this year Threedumb are planting themselves firmly in the 21st century with I thought I might be Jet Li as the play offers a fast paced glimpse into the lives of three millennial men struggling to come to terms with life in post-Brexit Britain.
Matthew attended Wellsway School in Keynsham and was involved with many local companies, including Keynsham Youth Theatre, Zenith Youth Theatre Company, Bath Operatic and Dramatic Society and Mission Theatre residents, Next Stage Theatre Company.
Another local actor, Matt Harwood, has been cast in the play. A childhood friend of Matthew, Matt was also a fellow student at Wellsway School and involved with Keynsham Youth Theatre. The two are also both students of The Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts.
I thought I might be Jet Li (but it turns out that I’m not) is at The Mission Theatre, Bath from Tuesday 6th – Thursday 8th June at 7.30pm. Tickets are on sale now at Bath Box Office – to book tickets, visit www.bathboxoffice.org.uk or call 01225 463362.
