Titchfield Festival Theatre’s autumn season continues with two modern short plays

Posted: 1st October 2020

Clare McIntyre was one of Britain’s most celebrated playwrights to emerge during the 1980s. McIntyre was passionate about changing the perception of women in society; and two of her plays are now rightly considered to be modern classics: Low Level Panic and My Heart’s a Suitcase. These two plays continue Titchfield Festival Theatre’s new autumn season.

Low Level Panic

Three young women share a flat, with a single bathroom; their lives shaped by men. Low Level Panic is a modern feminist classic, examining the effects of society's objectification of women. Watch as three women confide in each other, revealing their private fantasies and anxieties.

My Heart’s a Suitcase

A second McIntyre classic, My Heart’s a Suitcase is about fear and materialistic longing. An angry impoverished waitress and a philosophical ceramics teacher in the early stages of multiple sclerosis share a borrowed, run down seaside apartment for the weekend. During the play we will encounter strange visitors including a Pest, a bad memory and Luggage, the Patron Saint of Heavy Burdens.

Kevin Fraser, Artistic Director at Titchfield Festival Theatre said, “Low Level Panic and My Heart’s a Suitcase are two award-winning short plays written by Claire McIntyre which we are delighted to showcase at Titchfield this year. McIntyre was an extraordinarily talented feminist playwright, her writing both funny and perceptive. Both plays are witty, humorous and a wonderfully sympathetic take on life. These short stories will appeal to men and women alike.”

October One-Act Plays  will be performed between Monday 5th  – Saturday 10th October at 7.30pm (matinée performances on Saturday 12th and Sunday 13th at 2.30pm) in the Acorn Theatre, Titchfield Festival Theatre, St Margarets Lane, Titchfield PO14 4BG .
