NAC commissions new play by FenCity Players: DIRT


NAC commissions new play by FenCity Players: DIRT Rehearsals have been taking place behind the scenes (involving alot of topsoil) in preparation for a work in progress performance of new NAC commissioned play DIRT on Tuesday 21 March 5pm and 8pm.

Set in a workshed surrounded by the harsh Fenland landscape, a group of seasonal workers share their griefs and aspirations as their hands painstakingly plough through the dirt.

FenCity Player Joseph Connolly co-writes with Director Toby Clarke following their triumphant debut show, MUCK (Norwich Arts Centre, Park Theatre).

Come and support a brand new piece of contemporary theatre from just £4.50-£12.50 (pay what you can afford).
