STEAMING, a new play by Pipeline Theatre, comes to Bath following its successful sell-out run in London. A pertinent look at contemporary life through the eyes of a disillusioned 15 year old, Streaming gained a string of 4 and 5 star reviews during its 3 week run at the Pleasance last year, and now comes to Bath as part of a national tour.
Rosa, 15, naïve, privately educated has lost her mother. Her father has lost his house and business. Leaving behind a life of ease, they find themselves in cheap, rented accommodation with a reclusive new neighbour – Candy, 30s, webcamming in her bedroom: £3.40 a minute, 20 punters a night. Unexpected life lessons are about to be learnt, by everyone…
Streaming is a three-handed, rites-of-passage dissection of contemporary life using knife sharp, witty dialogue, evocative sound design, moments of fleeting, macabre puppetry and a shape-shifting set where walls become veils and the private becomes public.
Pipeline Theatre are based in Cornwall, and aim to create text-based drama with high-end design values. They seek to provide a platform for gifted young actors to perform alongside seasoned professionals. Streaming is the second performance from the company, whose debut production Transports received acclaim following runs in both Cornwall and the Tristan Bates theatre in London.
Streaming is written by Jon Welch and features Kyla Goodey (Kneehigh Theatre, Red Ladder, Miracle Theatre, Wildworks), Angus Brown (Miracle Theatre), Anna Munden (Pipeline Theatre) and Nix Wood (Cube Theatre, Horse and Bamboo).
STREAMING is at the Ustinov Studio on Friday 27th & Saturday 28th February. Tickets are on sale now from the Theatre Royal Bath Box Office on 01225 448844, or online at www.theatreroyal.org.uk/ustinov
