Sgript Xplosure! 4 @ Chapter – Saturday’s events     

Xplosure! ends this Saturday with a reading of “King of The Jungle” by Swansea-born playwright, Stuart Allen.

The play looks at three friends scraping along by dealing in soft drugs and dodgy gear, until they are caught up in something much bigger. Involving a strike at a local factory, intimidation and police corruption, the friends become forced to examine their loyalties. By turns hilarious and frightening, this everyday story of lock-up garages and small-time Port Talbot wideboys strikes a chord as well as a funny bone. But “Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” it isn’t – these three aren’t really bad, they’re just bad at it.

Directed by Helen Raynor, the reading features a young and exciting cast – Steffan Rhodri, Nicholas McGoughey, Giles Thomas, David Rees Talbot, Rhian Gwyn and Nicholas Aaron (one of the main players in Spielberg’s new “Band of Brothers”). The reading takes place at 8.00pm in the Theatre at Chapter.

Sgript Xplosure! is accessible to anyone who becomes a subscriber to the mailing list at a cost of £5. This allows you free entry to any of the events for a year.
