PERSONAL Recommendations:

Trade It? A series of ten dramatised meditations on Bristol’s shameful past and the continuing injustices that shape identities and individual lives in today’s interdependent world. Performed in the evocative settings of Bristol’s historical city architecture and powered by incisive scripts and full-on performances, this crafted sequence of mini playlets ruminates on the lives and legacies of those caught up within surrounding forces of history and change. Eloquent and entertaining, serious and suprising, not even a Bristol summer downpour could dampen the enthusiasm of actors and audience alike. Highly recommended.
