Coldstream - OB Hastings

‘Coldstream’ at the O.B. Theatre

The Observer Building Theatre opened on the 19th of March with ‘Ruff’ by leading feminist theatre company Split Britches. The play dealt with the after effects of a stroke and the loss of identity on their lead actor Peggy Shaw. ‘Ruff’ continues it’s run at the Barbican Theatre London. Now, hot on it’s tail comes a play dealing with the very male dominated world of the war on terror, Coldstream.

COLDSTREAM produced by Printers Playhouse

Coming from a London pub to an armoured wagon in Afghanistan, Coldstream is based on interviews by John Berry with former soldiers who served in the Coldstream guards. Viewed through the eyes of those on the ground, Coldstream reveals what it means to be part of the legendary British regiment; what it means to be part of the war on terror; and what it means to make the journey home again. Simon Jessop’s production makes powerful and inventive use of movement, music and song to create a visceral, complex and urgent piece of theatre.

Coldstream is on the 8th and 9th of April at 7.45pm. Tickets are available from: £10  and £8.00 concessions
