Tinderbox and SARC presents a selection of short sound plays.
In 2013 we brought together writers Colin Bell, Michael Duke, Rosemary Jenkinson and Jimmy McAleavey with sonic artists Justin Yang and Peter Stitt as part of our Writers Lab.
Pleases join us to experience the experimental and visceral sound journeys which came out of the collaboration. The pieces are work in progress.

The busiest theatre festival in the year is returning to the MAC at the end of June. Pick ‘n’ Mix is a weekend-long festival and in 2014 it will take place on Saturday 28th and Sunday 29th June with the potential to extend into Monday 30th.
This is the call for a wide range of new and inventive shows: dance, theatre and performance art. The MAC has two theatres and lots of nooks and crannies suitable for more intimate performances and foyer events.
