Reading some poems at LIGHTBOX on 1st Feb

Blog

I’ll be reading poems on 1st Feb at the ‘Lightbox’ event in East Oxford Community Centre.

Come along to the event hosted by Oxford Poetry Library and LIT Reading Group on February 1 2020 for an evening of creative writing and music on the subject of light in its many forms, from daylight and firelight to enlightenment and revelation, as well as some light relief. We will be escaping the midwinter dark with original poetry and prose from LIT Reading Group.

Tickets are available on the door or for advance purchase here.

After Aulis wins a Fringie!

Blog

We’re delighted to have been awarded Fringe Event of the Year!

2018 saw an array of exciting fringe theatre performed in Stratford. So to be pegged as the top event of the year feels blummin’ fantastic.

Thanks so much to The Attic theatre for hosting the premiere of the play (a well deserved win for them as Fringe Venue of the Year).

Now it’s full steam ahead as we prepare to take Nia to Brighton – and tickets are now on sale! Books yours here.

After Aulis @ The Attic

Blog, Performances

In July 2017, Nia got her first full outing, performing to audiences in the fantastic fringe theatre space ‘The Attic’, in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Outside The Attic – Nia’s on the bill!

As it was new writing – and being round the corner from the RSC! – we knew we needed to work hard to bring people in. So, in the weeks running up the performance, we showcased teaser videos on social media, and then Emme and Rowena took to the Stratford streets to hand out flyers.

And it was well worth the sore feet and throats – with the biggest audiences for new writing that The Attic had ever seen!

At the end of the run, we were thrilled at our review in the Stratford Observer, which you can read here.

After each of the performances, we also asked the audiences for feedback. Here’s what they had to say:

“Wonderful script, amazing actress, playing 6 parts so clearly.  Funny, sad and soul searching.  A must-see”

“Heartbreaking and joyful. Thought it was beautifully written, directed and performed.”

“Go see it – brilliant performance!”

“A funny and moving portrayal of a 21st Century woman”

“Brilliant storytelling.  A journey through many emotions throughout.  Emmeline was fantastic.  Thank you.”

“Funny, sad and thought provoking – great actress, great writer”

“Rude, sad and mad.  After Aulis has it all!”

“An acerbic and absorbing contemporary take on an ancient Greek tragedy. Emmeline Braefield revels in her portrayal of the main protagonist: hilariously callous throughout, yet at times deeply compassionate; all the while playing an array of identifiable supporting characters in this must-see one-woman show. “
