‘Theatre Unwrapped‘ is part of The Brewhouse Theatre’s programme of cultivation activities, designed to explore theatrical events in our programme through curated discussion groups and Q&A sessions with visiting companies and artists.
Each month we explore text (a book or a play) that has been adapted for stage or screen and is due to be presented at The Brewhouse Theatre. A bit like a book club for Theatre!
The Brew Literary Group takes place on the first Thursday of the month from 6.00pm to 7.30pm.

USEFUL NOTES: The group is encouraged to read texts in advance and discuss themes in a ‘book-club’ style fashion. The group leader passes on any relevant information from the performing company as to how they approached their adaptation and interesting facts about their production. Sessions are free and everyone is welcome to join the conversation.
