This session supports the performance of Tree House at the Brewhouse on 15 November at 7.30pm. It is a new work by writer / director Chris Fogg who will be leading this Theatre Unwrapped session. The Treehouse is a story of love and dreams, promises and betrayals, hope and redemption, shot through with warmth, humour and compassion.
It relates the fortunes of three people – Robbie, Jane and Alan – whom we first encounter as children playing in a tree house on a piece of waste ground on the edge of a village. We then follow each of them as they navigate their way along the different rungs of the social and property ladder: Jane goes into law, politics and the media; Alan pursues a career in property, finance and the City; while Robbie joins the Army, carries out a number of tours of duty in Afghanistan, defusing roadside bombs, where a spontaneous act of kindness leads to a sudden and unexpected tragedy.
Some years later fate conspires to bring all three back to the waste ground, back to the tree house, where old scores are settled in a final act of reckoning.
The Play will be emailed to you on booking the workshop (included in the ticket price), please read it and come along to the session ready for discussion and insight from the plays Writer / Director Chris Fogg.
