Bristol School of Acting is the first school to be based in a working theatre, Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatres, and has powerfully made its mark on the Bristol theatre scene by doing things differently. They challenge the status quo by nurturing their artists to release their uniqueness and use their real-life experiences to bring distinction to their work.
Themes of love and friendship, bravery, and shocking revelations run through the season which has a broad international influence and shines a light on plays and playwrights have been less performed.
Co-Director of BSA, Stuart Wood says: “We are delighted to stage this important season of work at Tobacco Factory Theatres. It is a great opportunity for audiences, not only to see something quite different – but also to see two of Nancy Medina’s pieces of work before she moves onto Bristol Old Vic next year.”
