the egg


  • Sat 31 Aug

Event Information


Performed on Sat 31 Aug

Fourteen writers. Fourteen actors. Fourteen short films about the intricacies, curiosities and preoccupations of modern life. Tales of love, tales of revenge, tales of the obscure, the mundane and the profound. Tales of hope, tales of hopelessness…

As a collective, the TRB Writers’ Group meet monthly at the theatre and this is their first joint screenwriting project; a beautiful and moving collection of short stories shot, produced and edited over the space of just two weeks by the extraordinary film-makers of Bristol’s Screenology.

The short films will be screened in one sitting and comprise:

It’s All Good by Brian Coyle
Mouthy by Clare Reddaway
Clown Boy by Debbie Beale
Defensive Wounds by Dom Rowe
Fake News by Elaine Miles
Just A Quick Call by Fran Landsman
Third Date by Hattie Taylor
Bench Press by John Reynolds
Cats by Matt Grinter
The Intern by Melanie Delargy
The Monster by Milo Morris
Scar Tissue by Nikki Lloyd
Touch & Go by Pippa Gladhill
Tits Up by Sarah Curwen
