New theatre show looks at bravery

New theatre show looks at bravery

An acclaimed theatre company is bringing its latest show to Arts Centre Washington.

RedCape Theatre make exhilarating and exciting shows inspired by true stories of ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Their new show Be Brave & Leave for the Unknown is at Arts Centre Washington on Wednesday 18 and Thursday 19 November as part of a tour of the North East.

The play explores the concept of bravery through the very personal story of a couple, and the sudden, unexpected course their lives take when tragedy strikes their family.

With a combination of powerful physical theatre, dynamic new writing and stunning soundscape (including original compositions by Jonny Pilcher - Athlete, White Lies, Super Furry Animals, Lana Del Rey), the award winning RedCape Theatre ask what is required of us when our courage is tested, when just taking the next step feels like the hardest thing to do.

RedCape is a critically acclaimed company whose recent successes include 1 Beach Road (“A thoughtful, unsettling and beautifully conceived show” - The Guardian) and The Idiot Colony (“Beautiful and touching. Mind blowing theatre” - Three Weeks).

Tickets £8.50 / £6 (conc) can be booked via the Box Office on 0191 219 3455 or online
