PINT-SIZED: OCTOBER-FEST

Pint-Sized, 'two of the most exciting producers of new-writing I've met in the last ten years' (Simon Stephens), return to The Bunker with their week-long festival.

 
Each night you’ll see the Pint-Sized you know and love; five short plays, chosen from over 1500 entries, with the writers mentored by the likes of Lucy Kirkwood, Simon Stephens, Lucy Prebble and more.
The winning plays are:

Bullring Techno Makeout Jamz by Nathan Queeley-Dennis
directed by Robert Awosusi
Nathaniel is getting ready for a date and takes us through the various local barbers where he can get the best haircut for his special night. A funny and heart-warming one-man show about Black British life in Birmingham.

How To Kill Your Mother by Georgia Green
directed by Emma Baggott
A subversive and irreverent dark comedy about a daughter helping her mother get through her terminal leukemia - and all the methods one takes to cope.

work.txt by Nathan Ellis
 directed by Andy McNamee
An immersive, experimental piece where the audience tells the story. Through projections and captions, the audience explores the gig economy and how the concept of 'work' is changing.

All Aboard! At Termination Station by Lilly Burton
dramaturgy by Tatty Hennessy
A raucous and powerful one-woman piece exploring the effects of abortion. Using audience interaction, music and surrealism, Lilly tells the story of how she deals with this episode in her life.

This Kind of Air by Vera Ion
directed by Nastazja Somers
Anna is suffering from anxiety. Which isn't helped by the arrival of her mother, with a human dog on a leash. A funny and powerful account of family relations and immigrant life in the UK.

As ever, the show comes wrapped up with our house band playing tracks written about each piece, and discounts at the bar; every previous Pint-Sized has sold out well in advance, so get booking and join us for the party!

We'll also be running a range of workshops, and finding ways to support emerging artists take the next steps in their career; for all of that, and many more announcements and surprises to come, keep an eye on @Pint_Sized_!
