Smoke Rings – Tickets now available online
18th April 2013
Smoke Rings, the brilliant new play written by our third-year dramatic writers, is running at Cheltenham’s Everyman Theatre, from Thursday 9th to Saturday 11th of May. This unique collaboration by our talented writers, Dreamshed Theatre Company, and The Everyman Theatre, has produced a drama not to be missed:
In 1604, James I described smoking as ‘A custome lothsome to the eye, hatefull to the Nose, harmefull to the braine, dangerous to the Lungs, and in the blacke stinking fume thereof, neerest resembling the horrible
Stigian smoke of the pit that is bottomelesse.’ 400 years later, our relationship with tobacco is just as complicated. In this innovative collaboratively written play, fifteen writers take a look at our personal and economic addictions: from the Cotswold’s seventeenth-century outlaw tobacco farmers (and the men who chased them) to present-day puffers at the Cheltenham races, this is the untold story of tobacco in Gloucestershire.
