Paines Plough pops up in Poole

PAINES Plough brings its award-winning pop-up theatre venue, Roundabout, to Hamworthy Park, in a venture with Poole’s Lighthouse arts centre, for four days from Thursday 14th to Saturday 16th October.

There are seven different productions, including four world premieres, as well as another chance to see The Heart at the Centre of the World, the community play commissioned by Lighthouse.

The world premieres are Black Love,  Hungry, Really Big and Loud, and May Queen. The other performances are Left Luggage and Drag Me To Love.

Black Love is a musical based on Chinonyerem Odimba’s new musical – a first for Roundabout – in which a sister and brother confront their fears and find their way back to each other. Hungry is a play about food, love, class and grief in a world where there’s little left to savour. Phoebe Eclair-Powell’s new family show Really Big and Really Loud features a helpful fly called Stephen and some great songs about chips. Katie Meredith’s May Queen is a coming-of-age story about a young woman from Coventry on a quest to find her place in her city and in the world.
