The Return of Pilot

A Press Release we can’t be bothered to rewrite, but that might interest you:


Thursday 25th Nov

Doors 7pm

The Foyle Studio, mac, Cannon Hill Park, Birmingham, B12 9QH

PILOT, the West Midlands’ playground for experimental theatre, returns
this Thursday with a fresh crop of artists providing Thanksgiving Day
treats. Though take note: This will be a turkey-free zone!

November’s PILOT presents a wealth of ideas and theatrical talent from
six companies from the West Midlands and beyond. Variously reflective,
comic and spectacular, these extracts promise to entertain, surprise
and inspire.

Thursday’s exciting line-up includes Kings of England’s poignant and
reflective In Elldersfield: Elegy for Paul Dirac, Blossom Theatre’s
Tell Me About Your Ex, which invites audience members to share stories
about their former partners and 101 Music-Theatre’s intense musical
narrative between ex-lovers Interview A: Interview B. Coventry’s New
Macho plan the perfect party with Fearless Enjoyment, Peter Fletcher
opens up his family albums in Three Times Hotter than Bournemouth,
while funny-mongers The Dog-Eared Collective present their anarchic
and darkly surreal brand of interactive comedy in The Dog-Eared
Collective & You!

As if this wasn’t enough, providing live music for the evening will be
our house-band, Sam Halmarack & The Miserablites, ambassadors of
interactive stadium pop. Get ready for hand-clapping anthems and
electro music made to move and inspire.

PILOT is a regular programme of ‘scratch’ nights organised jointly by
Sam Fox and Jess Mackinnon of Kindle Theatre, Paul Warwick of China
Plate and guest curators. This edition is co-Piloted by Graeme Rose, a
founder of theatre companies Stan’s Cafe and The Resurrectionists and
a member of The Modified Toy Orchestra.
