Former Performing Arts student brings her critically acclaimed show to Trowbridge

A former Wiltshire College student is bringing her one-woman show to her home town of Trowbridge, as part of its UK tour debut.

After a hugely successful five-week tour of India in the autumn, a sold-out three weeks in London and a full month run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2017, Natasha Marshall says she can’t wait to bring her show Half Breed to the Arc Theatre in May.

The play is a partly autobiographical dark comedy and deals with issues such as faith, identity and racism.

Natasha, who studied Performing Arts at the Trowbridge campus, said: “This tour is so important and vital for me.

“Taking Half Breed home is more than a performance, it’s a turning point for me on a personal level.

“I want it to challenge people’s perceptions and for anyone who identifies with the story, I hope this brings them comfort in knowing they are not alone.”

Half Breed began its life as a poem at spoken word nights.

It then developed into a short play which Natasha first performed at Talawa Firsts and Soho Theatre’s Soho Rising Festival, and the piece had its full-length premiere at Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2017.

The play was shortlisted for the Tony Craze Soho Writers Award and the Alfred Fagon Award and was nominated for Best New Play in the 2017 UK Theatre Awards.

This critically acclaimed show which has rave reviews takes place at 7.30pm on Thursday 3rd May at the Arc Theatre.
