More Information on Reece’s Pieces: Test Event
A pilot performance from Associate Artist Reece Dinsdale
‘It started in lockdown as a challenge to myself. As an actor I had never felt comfortable speaking publicly unless I was playing a role, so I thought I’d face a few demons by attempting to talk live online to my twitter followers. What I discovered was, that when I got started… I couldn’t stop! Reaching the age of sixty, and having been round the block at least twice, I realised I might have a tale or two to tell.’
Reece’s Pieces… just a bloke beginning to find his voice.
This is a test event, running as part of the Playhouse’s plans to re-open the theatre. Tickets will be limited and information will be shared with bookers about changes we have implemented to make the theatre experience safe according to government advice and Covid-19 guidelines. More information
