Theatre at Trinity

Rupert & The Egg, performed at Trinity in the 1980s

Trinity is an ideal theatre space and has to some extent been underused in this regard.

The Dolwilym Theatre Company was one of the first groups to bring live drama to Trinity. Rupert and the Big Egg was staged in 1980. Hannah Cox who appeared in the play as a child returned to Trinity years later to base her undergraduate dissertation on the building.

In1983 Arts Opportunity Theatre (AOT ) staged the play Black and White in Colour. The play explored the causes of the St Paul’s riot in 1980.

In 2008 the site specific play At Tether’s End used the space itself to bring Trinity’s history to life. Trinity has also supported individual practitioners and companies by offering cheap rehearsal and performance space. Notable performances include Ratupadrainpipe's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest in 2009.

Other performance arts activities include two First Light Movie projects between 2008-2010; a scriptwriting project supported by British actor Stephen Graham and a short film project that culminated in three-minute film aptly entitled 3, working with a group of local young people to teach them recording and production skills.
