Victorian, unique and vintage are but a few ways to describe the eye-catching Old Joint Stock Theatre pub, sitting just shy of Birmingham City Centre. Born originally as a library in 1862 then later a bank, this decadent and richly decorated Victorian pub sits comfortably opposite St Philips Cathedral…
'You're really talented... I got hard as I watched you.'
Tom has always dreamt of being a successful actor, and now after years of disappointment he is finally presented with his golden opportunity... and an impossible decision to make.
Set against the backdrop of the 2017 #MeToo movement, VELVET explores the complex realities of harassment within the industry and how far a person is willing to go to achieve their dreams. However, when most creatives are riding the wave of change, will Tom's opportunity slip through his fingers?
Winner of Theatre Weekly's 'Outstanding Monologue' in Edinburgh 2018's 'Best of the Fest', VELVET is written and performed by Tom Ratcliffe and directed by Andrew Twyman (Kanye the First; Hightide).
