We have a play!!
See it in the Bar
January 31 to Feb 3 and Feb 28 – March 3
Grim & Grisly Up North
In August 2013 BLT is branching out and taking a production to the
Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The play we have chosen was first performed in San Francisco and Los
Angeles in 2012 and this will be its UK premier…
“Very Still and Hard to See” is an eerie excursion into the surreal and
the supernatural, combining elements from modern ghost stories and Japanese
folk tales and centred on events in and around a very strange hotel. Whilst
the building is under construction, its architect, enters into a bizarre
contract with a mysterious woman he meets deep beneath the hotel’s
foundations. Their pact leads to a series of weird but strangely linked episodes
combining comedy with menace, short on explanations but full of startling
implications which span the ensuing years. Everyday situations from riding in a
hotel elevator to preparing for a blind date take on supernatural
qualities. The captivating characters encounter mystical forces that collapse the
distance between the real and the surreal. This magical, funny, and
sometimes mind-bending creation by acclaimed American playwright Steve Yockey will
take you on an exhilarating, visceral journey.
See it first in the bar in January/February/March (31/01/13 to 03/02/13 &
28/02/13 to 03/03/13). The setting for this production will require seating
in the bar to be limited so you are advised to book early if you want to
be amongst the first to see this brilliant new play.
