Trip The Light Theatre – Not Goodbye

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

Following their visit to AE Harris with their show The Sun Shining On Her Hands Trip The Light return on Saturday 15th October with their new show Not Goodbye

‘Not Goodbye’ is a heart-warming comedy, fusing movement, dance and mime to tell the relatable story of a mother and her daughter, exploring the joys and frustrations of life that they share over a period of 25 years.

As daily pressures build and tragedy strikes their family, both women must find a way to communicate and understand one other in order to find a balance between support and independence. The piece conveys the familiar, funny and sometimes heartbreaking relationship between a mother and daughter by presenting a scrapbook of shared moments, using only dance, live and recorded music, mime and movement.

Tickets available online and on the door:
Adults £6
Students £5 (with valid student ID card)

We are very happy to be hosting Outbox Theatre’s AFFECTION, a new devised show about bodies, intimacy and HIV.

Friday 30th September and Saturday 1st October at 7.30pm

This is 2016: More gay men than ever are contracting HIV, confusion surrounds what it is to be positive and undetectable, the government are denying medicine to the most vulnerable and at-risk.

Based on real-life stories, affection is not a victim piece. It is raw, funny and honest. Because it’s about time that we had another conversation about HIV.
