Plays in a Bag

By Dirty Protest

production information

Plays in a Bag are exactly that, plays which can be carried anywhere in a bag! One of Wales' most exciting new writing companies, Dirty Protest are experts at creating lo-fi, high-drama shows. This is their latest challenge to writers, to produce an exciting new play within the strictest parameters. On the first weekend of the Festival they will be taking over our bar; grab a drink and enjoy these short plays.

Writer Neil Bebber tells us what he would have in a bag of his life.

“Dirty Protest is one of the most dynamic initiatives in theatre at the moment – a mad, messy collective of writers and theatre artists with something worthwhile to say.”
John McGrath, Artistic Director of National Theatre of Wales

“There are few people making theatre this exciting in Wales today.”
The Guardian

“Such spellbinding intimacy that it’s impossible not to be drawn in…This is a wonderful introduction to new writing, and a fresh take on how performances can work”
The Big Issue Cymru
