Unearthed Review for Trowbridge Arts

Created by Folio Theatre and directed by Kim Pearce, Unearthed is the witty and poignant story of twins Ben and Eliza, who, following the death of their father after a long illness, are brought back together from their very separate lives for the funeral. Upon the reading of their fathers will, they discover that  their father has added a codicil, and neither of them will get a penny of the money left to them until they fulfil all of it's nonsensical conditions. Upon reading the list Eliza exclaims, “Number 7 looks like it’s written in code and I’m pretty sure number 5 is illegal. Number four is physically impossible”.

The rest of the play concerns their embarrassed and often hilarious attempts at completing the incomprehensible list. From forcing themselves to listen to three consequtive pink floyd albums, to performing an S Club 7 dance rountine on their dead mothers grave, the demands seem to get crazier and crazier.  Along the way there are revelations of long concealed secrets, on a journey that ultimately heals the rift between the two siblings.

Play celebrating the 400 anniversary of Shakespear's death is a hit with local children

Macbeth Curse World Premier for Trowbridge

The Macbeth Curse was written by Terry Deary, famed author of over 280 books including the gory but rollicking Horrible Histories series. Written for and performed by the Prime Theatre company with a cast so streamlined you could fit it in a match box, the play was authored to commemorate the 400 year anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. After touring schools for a week, the play premièred to an audience of all ages on Sunday the 5th of March.  Performed in the Victorian Trowbridge Town Hall, which itself opened in 1889, the transformation of the audience into bona fide time travellers was complete.

Celebrating 50 Years of the Shift Dress

ShiftWorks Exhibition Open Evening 5 November - Continues until 24 December

Celebrating 50 Years of the Shift Dress

Trowbridge Arts invite you to ‘ShiftWorks’, an exhibition from the contemporary textile collective, Seam. The group of nine makers are based in Bath and cross a broad range of textile techniques including print, embroidery, knit, weave, dye, fashion and eco-design.

Looking for a way to demonstrate the many different working methods within the group, they took inspiration from the concept of the shift dress. This straight-lined simple dress shape has become ubiquitous since its emergence in 1965. Each member of Seam has taken the basic pattern and used their own unique processes to showcase textile design. The dresses, not all of which are wearable, have become a canvas for their ideas.

To celebrate the fifty years since the mainstream adoption of the shift dress Seam invited members of the public to send in photographs of their favourite shift dresses. Fifty of these collected photographs accompany the dresses in the exhibition.
