Black Theatre Live


My Big Cowpat Wedding

My Big Fat Cowpat Wedding was created especially for rural and city community centre touring jointly with Arts Alive (rural touring scheme for Shropshire) and Black Country Touring. The first time a rural touring show has been created in this way.

Cowpat was originally produced in 2014 when it was seen by over 2,000 people across 24 performances, most sold out, in a tour across the UK to rural venues and city community centres.

In May 2015 it was revived for the Alchemy Festival at the Southbank Centre. We also took it to Wolverhampton and Smethwick Library.

In July 2015 an extract was presented at the National Rural Touring Forum Conference.

In 2016 it did a 7 week tour to 38 venues:
