An exploration of life and death is presented in two very different plays by West Yorkshire Theatre Network (WYTN) and Moment To Moment Acting (M2M) at Bradford's Theatre in the Mill. Two plays in one evening for only £8.
A future Britain. A totalitarian state. The population is divided into five segregated classes. Money buys status, health, power, and even babies. But the babies must be perfect specimens if they are to be allowed to live. Ten Tiny Fingers, Nine Tiny Toes is a passionate tale of motherhood, compassion and humanity. A comic and alarming play which has a frightening resonance for today. It was first performed in 1989 at the Library Theatre, Manchester.
"Compulsive viewing...Insanity is served up as common sense to sinister effect"
~ The Observer
Nobody can ignore the fact that Myra is dying, although her family spend most of their time trying to. In the meantime, life goes on. There are boilers to be fixed, cats to be fed, and the perfect funeral to be planned. A dark comedy about death, denial and being left behind, Colder Than Here won a Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Laura Wade in 2005 as Most Promising Playwright and was first produced at Soho Theatre.
"A masterpiece" ~ The Sunday Times.
This performance is the end of year production for actors who have completed a year long acting training course in The Meisner Technique with WYTN and M2M.
