Chelsey Gillard said:
Kill Thy Neighbour is both hilarious and spooky – my favourite combination. It speaks to issues directly affecting many communities in Wales and has such heart. I am passionate about new writing and new voices on our stages, this is Lucie’s first play and is beautifully crafted and entertaining. The Torch is thrilled to be working in collaboration with Theatr Clwyd to bring this play to life and I can’t wait to share it with audiences in Mold and Milford Haven.
Kill Thy Neighbour will be performed at Theatr Mix, Theatr Clwyd from 2-20 April. Accessible performances will take place on the following dates: BSL 6 and 12 April, audio described and touch tours 10 April and captioned performance 20 April. Click here to book now.
