ACTORS from the Belgrade Theatre are set to go on a mini tour to read excerpts from upcoming plays at some of the most picturesque and historic settings around Coventry and Warwickshire.
The second week-long Belgrade Theatre Unplugged will see the likes of The Establishment Bar and Grill in the Old County Hall in Coventry, the city’s former medieval quarry Primrose Hill Park, Nicholas Chamberlaine Almshouses in Bedworth, Touchwood Shopping Centre in Solihull, Upton House near Stratford, Rugby Museum and Art Gallery and Lunt Roman Fort host the free performances from on Saturday, July 19.
Audiences will be treated to snippets from shows in the autumn season including the world premiere of Peter Arnott’s Propaganda Swing as well as 2Tone musical Three Minute Heroes and the B2 X-mas show Oh No It Isn’t.
The first event will take place in the familiar surroundings of the theatre’s B4 Grill at 1pm.
Artistic director Hamish Glen said: “These events have been devised to offer people the chance to come and hear excerpts from our forthcoming autumn season in the form of rehearsed readings in interesting and inspiring settings.
“They aren’t fully realised productions with big sets and lighting; they are stripped back, unplugged readings that I’m putting together with a group of talented actors to give you a unique taste of what’s in store at the Belgrade throughout the rest of the year.”
Entry is free to all events, but tickets do need to be booked from the theatre.
