New Local Writers @ Preston Tringe

Posted on - 11th June, 2010 - 11:46am | Author - | Posted in - Arts, Comedy, People, Pubs

The infamous Preston Tringe Festival, which captures the brave and bold talents of theatre, comedy, magic and music will be kicking off on the 23rd July and will be entertaining us until the 1st August.


If you’re interested in seeing what some of the best new local writers have to offer at this year’s festival, why not pop down to one of the following productions – all of which have something different to offer.

On the 24th and 25th July, Renegade Productions will be performing their act ‘Bittersweet Sketches’ at the Adelphi public house. The performance will showcase the talents of new writers recently graduated from UCLan, including new comic sketches and will include a collection of original, new, comedy acts, mock trailers, short films and musical comedy.

The Continental will be showcasing the talents of Jack A. Coverdale and Fallen Wall’s  production of ‘The Existence’. The contemporary play takes a unique look at how much power the personal diary holds, the truth it contains and the owners reluctance to admit it outloud. The Existence will be performed on the 25th and 26th July and also looks deep into  the world we now live in – and how twenty-four hour rolling news, adverts and cartoons are a predominant feature in our lives.
Another one to watch out for at the Continental is The Last Orders Theatre Company  who will be performing, ‘The Gentle Plagued’ on the 31st July and 1st August. The play is  written by local playwright, Lee Johnson and tells the tale of the inhabitants of a small, local village who become ridden with a mysterious plague. As panic and mayhem erupts the play focuses on the turbulent lives and relationships of the villagers and how they can survive, as an alcoholic doctor struggles to maintain calm throughout the town.
