"The Possibilities" is a unique suite of ten short plays - thematically linked but the plots and settings aren't related. It has been a great pleasure to return to this challenging piece. Castaway staged it ten years ago in the Great Hall, when the Arts Centre was being renovated. Only one of the original cast remains so this version has a totally different dynamic. Also, the staging is very different. Indeed if you are sitting reading this in the theatre you may well be wondering what the hell have we done to the place!! It is all part of staging the work of one of our most challenging writers...Howard Barker's work is not easy!! We are immensely proud to stage his work. I was at a drinks reception with Howard last year and I asked him if he minded community companies staging his plays. He seemed very excited by the notion but also gave me the impression that community groups rarely venture near his plays...so perhaps tonight is a reasonably unique community event!
