What is it?
The School of Performing Arts, University of Wales Trinity Saint David in collaboration with Tin Shed Experience present Bags, Tags and Gasmasks – Evacuees in Laugharne.
The final year students have created an engaging piece of site-specific theatre, which takes place at Tin Shed Experience museum in Laugharne. The war years saw many displaced people all over Europe; but even in the United Kingdom, tens of thousands of city children were packed off to a rural environment far from the world they knew.
Using this stimulus as a jumping off point, the students have researched the period and made an immersive piece of theatre, which seeks to enhance the Tin Shed Experience. The students have tried to look past “We’ll Meet Again” and examine the complex and sometimes fragile relationships which had to be forged in that most difficult of times.
This production is scheduled for seven performances over the course of Monday 27th May to Wednesday 29th May. Audiences are restricted to 30 people per performance so you are recommended to book tickets in advance. The Museum itself will be closed from Monday 27th May to Wednesday 29th May for the production.
It is an outdoor performance so you are advised to wear suitable clothing. Refreshments will be on sale at the venue.
