theatre on tap
A 24 Hour Creative Challenge in a Pub.
On June 16, three teams of writers, directors, and performers will create three all new pieces of theatre...all designed for the Old Red Lion’s pub. We’re bringing your favourite artists from the Vaults Festival, Edinburgh Fringe, and the Offies together to come up with the wildest stories they can dream up about what could happen in a pub. The clock starts when the writers walk into the pub on the 16th. When the pub closes that night, our actors and directors will get their final scripts, each fifteen to twenty minutes long, and they’ll have from when the pub opens up that morning until show time to make something amazing and perform it for you.
Theatre on Tap is the launch event for Part of the Night, a new theatre company on a mission to make the nightlife scene safer, more exciting, and more inviting to women, trans, and non-binary individuals. Starting with the Old Red Lion, we’ll be filling pubs and clubs across the UK with something that brings everyone together: really good stories.
Part of the Night will announce artists every week leading up to Theatre on Tap and we’ll be posting sneak peaks of what they’re making on June 16 and 17. Follow our twitter to be the first to know who’s joining us at the Old Red Lion, what they’re making, and what we have up next: https://twitter.com/
