JADE CITY

3 - 21 September 2019

JADE CITY
"A powerful play confronting the consequences of the UK’s lack of social mobility and opportunity”
The Play's The Thing
★★★★ Theatre Weekly ★★★★ I Thank You Theatre
★★★★ Breaking the Fourth Wall

Sas and Monty are trapped in this place, and in their heads. From the working men’s to Monty’s empty flat, their only escape comes from playing The Game; where they can be bin men hiding stolen cash under the mattress, seagulls snatching dogs on the high street, or just themselves, free at last, knocking back breakfast cocktails on a sunny beach in Jamaica.  

But Sas doesn’t want to play anymore. He wants to talk. About girls, his head and that summer they can’t forget.
 

Rich in the language of Belfast, and with an original electronic score, Jade City is a lyrical and powerful exploration of growing up and growing apart, about the choices we make and the only choices we have.

WE ANCHOR IN HOPE

A new play from the award-winning Anna Jordan (Killing Eve, Succession & YEN), and directed by Bunker Artistic Director Chris Sonnex.

LITTLE MISS BURDEN
They are the coolest, fiercest, most super talentedest girl band ever assembled:

Big Sis and Little Sis are waiting for the third member of their trio to arrive. Little Miss is on her way. It just takes her a little bit longer.

At thirteen, Little Miss is given a gift which cannot be returned. It’s a part of her. She has to share her body and life with it. And she needs to find a way for the two of them to get along as they can’t both be Player One.

Matilda Ibini’s coming-of-age tale smashes together 90s nostalgia, Nigerian family, East London and Sailor Moon to tell the sometimes tricky, often funny truth about growing up with a physical impairment.
