Run Amok Theatre Company Presents: Ed Thomasís 
Flowers of the Dead Red Sea Following sell-out shows for their Winter 2013-14 tour of 4:48 Psychosis, emerging Welsh theatre company Run Amok (associate theatre company of Aberystwyth Arts Centre) are delighted to bring their fresh spin on Welsh contemporary classic Flowers of the Dead Red Sea by Ed Thomas (writer and producer of S4C and BBC’s Hinterland/Y Gwyll) to the audiences of Aberystwyth Arts Centre (1st May), The Rosemary Branch, London (8th and 9th of May) and Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama (10th of May).

Flowers of the Dead Red Sea follows two butchers Mock and Joe on a darkly hilarious journey through an absurdist, dystopian Welsh landscape. Razor sharp and fast-paced, Flowers of the Dead Red Sea promises to be a deeply entertaining and energising evening of Welsh writing at its most compelling.

Ed Thomas will be giving a post-show discussion in Aberystwyth on the 1st of May. The playwright has also agreed to write new monologues for both characters as part of an online promotional scheme for the project, which will be filmed on location by Pete Telfer (National Theatre Wales, Culture Colony) in association with local farm-owners and businesses. Run Amok’s Flowers of the Dead Red Sea will therefore be promoting new work from the dramatist alongside reviving this eminent piece of Welsh theatre for new audiences in both Wales and London.

Run Amok will be facilitating Welsh and English-language led workshops on the text in local Secondary schools in the Aberystwyth area. Run Amok Theatre Company is dedicated to creating performance work with an emphasis on ensemble whilst working with the community to promote awareness and engagement with the text.
