Small Change will be George Richmond-Scott’s second play at Omnibus Theatre and follows his double
2018 OFFIE nominated adaptation of Lorca’s Blood Wedding.
He says of Gill’s work: “I was drawn to his incredible vivid language and his gift for evoking place and childhood. At the heart of this play is a powerful examination of parent, child and love. It’s a story that looks at how we deal with the past and old wounds in our quest for reconciliation and peace.”
George is associate director on Everybody’s Talking About Jamie and newly appointed Head of
Performance at ALRA South. He launched his new production company, Both Barrels Theatre in 2020 as a not-for-profit organisation.
Peter Gills’ powerful memory play, set on the east side of Cardiff in the 1950s and the 1970s, about
boyhood, the complex love between mothers and sons and a search for the truth is revived by George
Richmond-Scott and launches the Autumn season at Omnibus Theatre from 14 September to 2 October
The play was last performed in London in 2008, this poetic exploration of the human condition centres around Gerard, a troubled man at the end of youth, trapped by his past. He relives his vibrant childhood in search for the moment that defined him. Gill’s story and its close examination of the truth and beauty in the ordinary and. mundane, is widely regarded as one of his finest works.
Why not go along to Omnibus Theatre in Clapham – the plays are always interesting and the welcome from front of house and the bar manager, in particular, is heart warming.
They’re back – what a relief!
