Award-winning theatre company to pull back the covers on love

Date: 10/01/2008           Category: Arts and Libraries

A Medway-based, award-winning theatre company returns to The Brook Theatre, Chatham, with two plays that delve into the darker recesses of relationships. Play on Words Theatre Company, winner of a prestigious Edinburgh Fringe First Award in 2006, will perform Celtic Coupling from Wednesday, 30 January to Saturday, 2 February, 8pm. preempting the sickly-sweet veneer of Valentines Day, Celtic Coupling is two one-act Irish plays that capture the isolation within relationships with wit, charm and insight. Geraldine Aron’s A Galway Girl explores the plight of an Irish rural working-class wife. Melody, by Deirdre Kinahan, cooks up a recipe of love between two lonely souls who share a fondness for classical music, sandwiches and massage parlours. Celtic Coupling is an emotional roller coaster, driven by the dizzying skills of Aidan Dooley and Miriam Cooper. Play On Words Theatre Company and Aidan have received worldwide acclaim for the play Tom Crean – Antarctic Explorer. Miriam’s solo performance in Sister Queens stole hearts at Fuse Festival 2006 and at last year’s festival, the company enjoyed a sellout run of Celtic Coupling. Tickets are £10, concessions available. Visit our box office, call on 01634 338338, email boxoffice@medway.gov.uk or visit www.medway.gov.theatrebooking.
