Peeling – On Tour

Presented by Taking Flight Theatre, Peeling by Kaite O’Reilly tours across Wales, Oxford & Manchester and features BAA’s Bea Webster.

In shadow, never centre stage, 3 performers await their brief moment in the light. Their words have been buried in dust, through the long corridor of time. We will unearth them here. They will echo in the darkness. This city will fall.

With interwoven BSL, live audio description and English captions at every show, Peeling challenges you to experience theatre afresh. Whose stories do we tell? And who will be there to bear witness?

Runs from 8th March to 9th May at various venues.

Mother Courage and Her Children – Leeds Playhouse

Our own Bea Webster is part of the cast of Mother Courage and Her Children, showing at Leeds Playhouse from Friday 28 September.

In Lee Hall’s wholly immersive production, audiences follow in the steps of Brecht’s fearless matriarch, as Mother Courage hauls her tinkering wagon of junk through crackling battlefields and bombed-out villages – echoing the modern-day refugee’s universal displacement.

Starring Pauline McLynn (Father Ted / Shameless) in Brecht’s iconic title role, Mother Courage and Her Children will mark Red Ladder’s 50th anniversary; over five decades of presenting stories of human struggle and resounding spirit in times of stark adversity.
