Inspired by Prometheus Bound by Aeschylus.

In 2021 it isn’t fire that Prometheus steals from the Gods, it’s love. The Love Thief, written and performed by playwright, actor and belly dancer Rahim El Habachi looks at sexuality, race and the realities of life in today’s Britain.

Reinvigorate. Revitalise. Reconnect. Reinvent.

Inspired by classic plays and books, Radical Reinventions is a collection of four short new plays that pack a punch. Each 30 minute-long play is crammed full of attitude, fun, contemporary spirit and irreverence. Radical Reinventions has been specially created to reconnect you with the joy of live theatre. The plays are written by a fresh and distinctive line-up of emerging and established Welsh and Wales-based writers. Telling surprising and compelling stories, dealing with life now, Radical Reinventions gives you space to think and worlds of emotion to feel.
