Both Sides - a new play by Jane Coyle

Tickets: £10.00

Doors Open 7.30pm


Stella and Estelle. Two women, two stories, two cities. How are they connected?

Both Sides is an intriguing double-edged play, comprising two interlocking monologues - Me Here, Me and Before Before. It is inspired by the works of Samuel Beckett..

In the first, a young woman sits in a Paris café, watching the world go by. Every passer-by seems to have a story. Is hers about to be revealed?

In the second, a middle aged woman sits in a bar in Nice, observing the people around her. She reflects on a colourful life and a loss too painful to bear.

The production features French dance music played live on violin and concertina.
