“New piece of dynamic storytelling”: AAAA (Five AAAAA)

London-based fringe theatre company Proforca is to return to the Albany Theatre Studio, Coventry with AAAAA (FiveA), a new piece which will be performed for one day only and which had to be rearranged because of the pandemic.

No details will be released before the performance as the theatre aims to “recapture the mystery, tension, and anticipation of the return of live fringe theatre”.

The Albany is inviting audiences to see a “new, brave piece of dynamic, emotionally charged fringe theatre storytelling from some of London's most exciting new fringe theatre writers with links to the city of Coventry, and an award-nominated, critically acclaimed production team where no two performances will be the same”.

AAAAA (FiveA) is written by David Brady, Jack Albert Cook, Gabrielle Nellis-Pain and Kim Scopes. It will be directed by Brady and Jess Barton. It will be at the Albany on Sunday 30 May at 5:30PM.

Proforca visited the Albany in September 2019 with At Last, written by Ames Lewis and Alexander Knott, and in spring 2018 with Feel by James Lewis.
