Contractions was taken to the Trafalgar Studio2 in as part of a Bristol Old Vic Theatre School showcase. To raise money to take them there we created a video campaign which you can see by clicking on the link. The video was filmed and edited by Jack Holden and show rehearsals for Country Music by Simon Stephens (Dir. Emel Yilmaz), Aliens by Annie Barker (Dir. Ed Stambo), Contractions and Orphans by Dennis Kelly (Dir. Matthew Grinter).


‘This is another notable outing 

for director Anna Girvan, who 

impressed last year with Dennis 

Kelly's Debris‘ 

Bristol Evening Post, 7/10

'Contractions is Mike Bartlett's precisely structured, acutely observed and effectively stylised script for two actors, here clearly presented and meticulously performed under Anna Girvan's exacting direction.’
