Dirty Protest Theatre bring drama to young audiences across the city

Cardiff’s Dirty Protest Theatre group are bringing six short plays to the Cardiff Arts Institute on Thursday 18th February 2010 as part of their ‘Out with the Old’ night.

The event will see plays ranging from three to 10 minutes performed by up and coming directors, actors and playwrights.

Skins writer Lucy Kirkwood, who has won the Independent’s Brightest Young Stage Writer award, will be one of those taking part in the event.

Dirty Protest’s Claire Hill said: “These plays were seen by a sold out London audience in December and since then we have been dying for our loyal Welsh audiences to see the plays. So it is great to be able to bring them to the Cardiff Arts Institute this week with a brilliant new Welsh cast which includes Matthew Bulgo, Erin Richards and Helen Rosser Davies.”

The night starts from 7 PM and is £4 entry.

Dirty Protest is a not for profit theatre company – run by actress Mared Swain, writer Tim Price, journalist Claire Hill and producer Ellie Carter – which devotes its time to bringing new plays to young people and to try and interest them in theatre. They do this by charging them about the price of a pint for a ticket and performing in venues where they are more likely to go to – ie bars, nightclubs.
