Show Information

Place like this – you know this – place like this gets in your blood. Once it’s in your blood, you can’t get it out.

Cardiff’s celebrated pub theatre The Other Room returns to Constellation Street, one of its biggest hits to date and originally staged in 2016, for the next in the series of Network Play Readings presented by Sherman Theatre and National Theatre Wales. This reading of all four monologues offers you an opportunity to savour Matthew Bulgo’s honest and finely crafted writing.

One night under Cardiff skies, four lost souls go looking for answers. After dark, when the world is quiet, their paths weave and collide as they all go in search of salvation. When dawn breaks, life will go on but there will be another night to contend with soon enough. As the sun rises over the Taff, can anyone break free from the past?

These interconnected monologues will initially be livestreamed over the course of the night of 16 May in real time and then available on demand. Audiences who saw Constellation Street on its original run will now have the opportunity to experience all four monologues together for the first time.

Unflinching, funny and humane – Constellation Street is somewhere you will want to spend time.

Constellation Street will be performed and streamed live, here
