A timely exploration of how society reacts to tragedy, this world premiere from Welsh playwright Brad Birch asks pertinent questions about how major events shape our lives, and the choices we make when trying to move on. Sherman Theatre’s newly appointed Associate Director David Mercatali will direct Tremor as his first production at the venue, and the two-hander will star Lisa Diveney (The Green Green Grass- BBC) and Paul Rattray (Jamestown, Game of Thrones).
Once our lives are touched by tragedy, can we ever truly move on? Sophie and Tom’s relationship fell apart in the aftermath of a catastrophe. Four years on and as they come face to face once again, the aftershocks of that fateful day can still be felt.
Tremor is a play about how the present is shaped by the past. It’s about how we choose to see things and live our lives in a world riven with tension, anxiety and division.
Sherman Theatre’s newly appointed Associate Director David Mercatali will direct Tremor as his first production at the venue. He was nominated for an Evening Standard for Outstanding Newcomer for Tender Napalm at the Southwark Playhouse, and won a Fringe First for Dark Vanilla Jungle.
Brad Birch said: “I’m over the moon to be working with the Sherman Theatre, David Mercatali and this brilliant company on Tremor. The Sherman has been so significant in my development as a playwright and I’m so excited that they’re producing this new play.”
Tremor is at the Sherman Theatre Cardiff 12th April – 5th May 2018.
