Shop front theatre pioneers premiere new play

Theatre Absolute are premiering a new work by award-winning writer Chris O’Connell in a former empty shop.

ARCADE is a short play and will be performed at the UK’s only professional Shop Front Theatre in City Arcade, in the heart of Coventry City centre.

Performed by Midlands actors Katy Stephens and John Flitcroft, ARCADE is a mixture of guilt, memory and desire - a passion play for two characters.

Jenks and Kath meet again after a lifetime apart, they struggle to reconcile themselves to events from a past life that governs who they are, and what they will do now. Played against the backdrop of Theatre Absolute's shop front theatre windows and its panoramic street view of Coventry city centre at dusk, ARCADE explores the shock of the everyday, and reconciling oneself to sudden life changing events.

ARCADE will be at the Shop Front Theatre from Tuesday 12th to Saturday 16th June. Evening performances start at 8pm. In addition there are also 2 matinees on 14th & 16th June at 2pm. The play lasts approximately 50 minutes and contains strong language. Suitable for ages 14 and above. Tickets are £6 available from the box office 0845 680 1926 or Advanced booking advised.
