After 4 years of experimenting, Clock Tower Theatre has landed on its signature, which is New Writing. This may be Comedy or Drama. We constantly seek to discover new writers with a distinct voice.
Having developed a strong local comedy audience with our production of Service! (which as well as a run at the Edinburgh Fringe and a tour, was performed multiple times in Cardiff), we would like to develop a Drama audience which is reflected in our programming choices for this season, “Fifth”. We hope eventually to alternate between the two genres and encourage a crossover of the two audiences.
Alongside this we are currently developing workshops for young people and schools, with the aim of inspiring the next generation of creatives.
Don’t Send Flowers was chosen for our current Drama season because of Emily’s very distinct, irreverent voice on a deeply emotional topic. We are very excited to be producing the premier of her well-researched and compassionate play, laced with black humour.
