TAILORED PERFORMANCES: 1 May, Relaxed; 12noon 8 May, Parent & Baby

Katie and her girlfriend Hope work at their local corner shop, where the days pass in quiet, comfortable rhythms. But when new employee Michael arrives, the sands start to shift and the air begins to thicken.

Written by Tabitha Mortiboy (Beacons) and directed by Hannah Hauer-King (The Funeral Director, Fabric), all-female theatre company Damsel Productions (Fabric, Fury, Grotty, Dry Land) presents The Amber Trap, an unsettling portrait of devotion and control.

 

TAILORED PERFORMANCES

RELAXED: For anyone who benefits from a more relaxed performance environment. House lights are left up with audience free to exit and reenter as required. Sound levels are reduced and any strobe / ‘flashing light’ effects will be omitted also.

PARENT & BABY: Similar to our Relaxed Performance in terms of technical alterations, but provided as an opportunity for new mums and dads to enjoy a spot of theatre without the need to hire a babysitter. Please note, we do not exclude other audience members from booking to see this performance.

Tabitha Mortiboy

Tabitha began her writing career in Bristol, where she had several short plays staged and where her first full length play Billy Through the Window premiered at The Wardrobe Theatre in 2015. Billy later transferred to Theatre503 and to Underbelly at the Edinburgh Fringe, where it was shortlisted for the Brighton Fringe Excellence Award. In the same year, she was selected to work for a year on attachment to Bristol Old Vic as part of their Open Sessions scheme. In 2016 her second play Beacons was produced at The Park Theatre, London. Beacons was nominated for three Off West End Awards including Best New Play and Most Promising New Playwright, and is now being developed for radio.
In 2017, she co-wrote Bare Skin on Briny Waters for the Edinburgh Fringe, where it received a commendation for writing in the NSDF Edinburgh Award. As well as creating her own work, she writes alongside Bellow Theatre (Supported Artists at Hull Truck Theatre and Emerging Company at New Diorama Theatre), a company she co-founded in 2013.
