The pub goers of the past are closer than you think

 

Have you ever thought about who might have nursed a pint at this table before you?  Who propped up the bar a decade ago?  Or who stood in front of that fireplace telling tall tales 200 years back?   

   

The pub is a meeting place; a hub of activity.  It’s a place where time can stand still.  But what if it does more than that?  What if it reverses, accelerates, twists and collides.  ‘Last orders’ are never called and THE REGULARS have never left.  And as the drinks flow, how blurred is the line between fact and fiction? 

 

This site-sensitive story, celebrating the spirit of the Local and the tales told there, will take place in pubs across the UK from Autumn 2021

It's been commissioned by The Inn Crowd and we'll put details of where it'll be below.

If you're a pub who'd like to book the show then you can contact The Inn Crowd here.

Written by Michael Wagg

Devised and performed by Michael Wagg, Sarah Finigan, Kas Darley and Mark Stevenson (2 performers per show).

The Regulars takes inspiration from a previous Teatro Vivo production ‘The Residents’, which was developed by Sophie Austin, Michael Wagg, Kas Darley and Mark Stevenson.

INN CROWD is a programme of high-quality live literature performances touring to rural pubs and community spaces across England. We coordinate and collaborate with some of the UK’s top artists and performers to provide pubs in rural areas with professional, high-quality, fantastic live entertainment, which in turn helps landlords to attract new customers, widen the experience for their regular visitors, and reinforces the pub as a central, vibrant part of community life. 

INN CROWD is a collaboration between Applause Rural Touring, Creative Arts East, and National Centre for Writing, working with Pub is the Hub and national rural touring partners.
