Three short stories delving into the minds of members of the same family are being played out at The Core at Corby Cube this week.

The stories are part of Glasshouse, a new play by award-winning writer Kate Tempest, which will be performed today at 7pm.

A spokesman said: “Full of Kate Tempest’s vivid, haunting poetry, Glasshouse draws audiences into a dark and gritty city, illuminated by moments of unexpected tenderness.”

The family involved in the stories are struggling to survive apart from each other and are seen giving up on their dreams.

The spokesman added: “It is a play with a difference, a forum theatre piece in which the audiences are involved to stop the action and come on stage to direct alternative scenarios.”

The company behind the production, Cardboard Citizens, has been making theatre with homeless and marginalised people for more than 20 years, employing actors with experience of homelessness to perform plays inspired by related issues.

Tickets cost £12.50 and £10.50, or £10.50 and £8.50 for concessions. To book, ring the box office on 01536 470470.
