The Drum


A sunflower, a lily or a rose? Which flower do you see yourself as? Flowers are beautiful, they come in different shapes and sizes. We appreciate their beauty just simply for what they are. It’s time we all did the same for black women. Alright Petal? is Beyond Face’s new piece of work from their emerging artist ensemble. A show that tells stories of how these women want to be seen. In a world of feminist discussion let’s make sure all voices are heard.

Directed by Alix Harris.
Performed by the Beyond Ensemble.

Age Guidance:12+
Length of Show: TBC (Likely 60 Minutes)


Two weeks, four shows, a vibrant celebration of the most engaging work being made in the South West…

Platform is a showcase of four new shows, made by the Theatre Royal Plymouth’s Lab Associates. Platform is a brand new TRP event in The Drum, offering audiences the opportunity to see new and original theatre, made by the local artists and companies that we’re most excited about.

Beyond Face CIC are a performance company based in Plymouth whose aim is to raise the profile and visibility of people of colour working in the arts. Beyond Face CIC make professional work across the South West whilst working with many emerging artists, young people, and communities.

Our Lab Associate scheme offers South West based companies/artists a year-long attachment to Theatre Royal Plymouth. We’re delighted to be collaborating with this talented cohort of local theatre makers. To find out more about the Lab Associate scheme and respective companies, visit our website.
