…brand new theatre in the making
Presented by China Plate. Commissioned by mac birmingham, In Good Company and Warwick Arts Centre.
First Bite is back and it’s bigger than ever. Join us for a chance to see an eclectic collection of extracts and new ideas from some of the most exciting theatre makers working across the region.
The last of three First Bite events taking place across the Midlands this spring that will see regional theatre companies show work in progress, test new material and look for feedback to help them develop their shows. Three of the pieces seen across the First Bite nights will be commissioned by the festival partners and guaranteed slots at the Bite Size Festival at Warwick Arts Centre in October.
Alongside this will be opportunities to meet the artists taking part as well as key industry figures who will be on hand to answer any questions you might have about working in theatre or how to make work of your own.
Be there at the start and help us mould the future of theatre in the Midlands.

Afternoon Session Line-Up
Jack AG Britton – MIGHTY
MIGHTY is a documentary declaration, a protest, a rally that often rhymes with one simple goal in mind, to interrogate if we discriminate based on one simple physical trait: height. Bite-sized activist Jack Britton (5ft 4") asks the big question, does size matter?
David Ralfe, Serious Business – We Are Men, Sorry
Three male performers combine contemporary dance with clowning and comedy, in a wry, tender and anarchic exploration of masculinity.
Flickbook Theatre – Casket Case
Casket Case is a show about our fear of death, dying and being dead. Part story, part cabaret, part totally morbid curiosity. After all, none of us are getting out of here alive.
Noctium – The Woman and the Wobbulator
Inspired by the story of Delia Derbyshire, Noctium explores the story of the BBC’s Radiophonic workshop and of its unaccredited pioneer of electronic sound. Through the work of this Coventry-born icon, the champion of modern music and the Doctor Who Theme tune Noctium brings you a tale your ears won’t believe.
