|Bold Productions is a professional touring company who work in at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. Our productions are always rehearsed and premiere in Aberystwyth before moving to different venues throughout the UK, representing Aberystwyth Arts Centre’s small scale professional touring.
The company was established in Wales in 2001 with an inaugural production of Jonathan Harvey’s Beautiful Thing. Over the past five years, we have presented professional productions primarily at Aberystwyth Arts Centre. In 2003, the company’s production of Peter Barnes’ Noonday Demons was toured to the Dublin Fringe Festival as part of the New Theatre Made In Wales professional tour to critical acclaim. Other recent productions include Harold Pinter’s One For The Road, A Slight Ache, The Dumb Waiter and most recently in February 2007, Marc Healy’s adaptation of The Collector by John Fowles.
[…] But it is so robustly acted, imaginatively directed and subtly lit in this production by the Welsh company that the piece almost takes on the quality of high art.
Donald Clarke – The Irish Times – Noonday Demons 2004
Both actors gelled magnificently in what is a very complex piece. It is also quite lengthy for a two-hander, but their interplay, through Hull’s direction, was approaching perfect, and their relationship was developed to the fullest and, on occasion, most shocking level.
