Theatrical experiments from exciting theatre makers
For the first time ever the Midland's legendary scratch night PILOT heads to West Bromwich with guest curators, NewMacho. With an infectiously warm atmosphere combined with the sweaty thrill of the unknown PILOT is by far one of the best nights out you can have in the Midlands.
This will be a unique evening of work in progress featuring some of the country's most exciting theatre makers. None of the work is finished, each piece lasts between 10 and 20 minutes and together will present a glorious mix of comic, touching and extraordinary performance. We invite you to grab a drink, enjoy the show and stick around in the bar afterwards to tell the artists exactly what you thought.
So come along, join the party and let NewMacho guide you with a slightly cheeky yet firm hand through a night of the new, untested and potentially spectacular.
PILOT is a regular programme of ‘scratch’ nights organised jointly by Sam Fox and Jess Mackinnon of Kindle Theatre, Paul Warwick of China Plate and guest curators.
NewMacho was born in Coventry and has been performing in and around the midlands for the past four years. They draw inspiration from relationships, experiments and everyday observations to create a progressive style of performance which encourages thought yet does not forget the importance of entertainment.
PILOT is supported by Arts Council England, mac, The Public and Warwick Arts Centre.
