Passing Moustache

Passing Moustache

A stylised and poetic look at how we process change… in ourselves, others and society.   What do we feel when faced with new ways of perceiving race, culture and gender. what are the prison bars we refuse to see?  The writing poses big questions but finds understanding in the minutiae.

The political is public but the personal is obscured, complicated by the secrets we keep from ourselves. 

Tickets are £8 full price, £6 concession

A Make It Write Production

From the Executive Producer

I often get unsolicited plays landing in my inbox with an excited ping.  I usually redirect the sender to the writers drop in, but this was different.  It was from Ted Gray who was already attending the drop in and had told me about his play.  I read it.  At the time it was just the bare bones and it wasn’t the shape of a normal play.  It crashed over me like a wave and then reset with a chorus.  At 58 years old, I don’t often get excited about much, but I could see the potential in this extract.  The play became the Passing Moustache and I could not be more pleased to present it to you.
