Paines Plough has taken up residency at the Orange Tree Theatre this month with three plays running in rep. I caught up with two of the plays, Elinor Cook’s Out of Love and Brad Birch’s Black Mountain.
In Brad Birch’s Black Mountain, we meet Pau and Rebecca who have taken a trip to the countryside. It’s soon apparent this ‘retreat’ isn’t for a rest or holiday, but a chance to talk about their relationship.
Paines Plough, a new writing touring company led by James Grieve and George Perrin — in a co-production with Theatr Clwyd and Orange Tree Theatre — have brought a trio of new work in repertory to this Richmond venue.
Brad Birch’s Black Mountain and Sarah McDonald-Hughes’ How To Be a Kid are two new plays being performed by Paines Plough at the Orange Tree Theatre.
