SILKWORM by Vlad Butucea

PEARLFISHER & THE BYRE THEATRE IN ASSOCIATION WITH

ASSEMBLY FESTIVAL

The story of two women living in a Glasgow tower block, seeking asylum from the UK Home Office on the basis of their sexual orientation, and waiting to hear the result of their case. How do they prove their claim?

A witty, intimate and intense study of two vulnerable, strong women as they seek the words to navigate their way through a savage system.

World premiere. Assembly ART Award winner 2022.
Directed by Mojisola Elufowoju

A SHAKESPEARE NORTH PLAYHOUSE, NORTHERN STAGE &

NOT TOO-TAME CO-PRODUCTION

It’s all kicking off in the woods! Two warring fairies are willing to destroy the world after a barney over a little lad, and four chaotic kids are off on a drug-induced love mission - Welcome to the party!

Join Not Too Tame for a riotous ride through the forest at night, for a tale of wild weddings, mistaken identity and a staging of Shakespeare’s best known comedy where not everything is as innocent as it seems. When dreams merge with reality it’s not always clear who’s who and what’s what - so keep your wits about you!

With more merriment than you can shake your ruff at, a big dose of bewilderment and a dash of disaster, this is a Midsummer Night's Dream not to be watched, but experienced. Pick up your petticoat and fasten your corsets, there’s a donkey on the loose.

Directed by Matthew Dunster & Jimmy Fairhurst
