Presented by JDJB and TLBB Productions

Saturday 20th July at 7.30pm

Back by popular demand! Following JDJB and TLBB Productions’ visit to snowy Bath earlier this year, we are delighted to welcome this talented company with its compelling play back to The Mission Theatre, hopefully in sunnier conditions!

‘Am I dead?’ Hazel asks, as her mother Ivy contemplates the past and an unknown future. A catastrophic event forces the two women to face reality. But what is familiar – where is the thread? Is it in the wool, the yarn? Can it be found in a Pas de Chat? Or does it lie with sleeping dogs?

TangleTree will resonate with anyone who has loved and triumphed, raged or even despaired at life’s challenges. This play is inspired by real life experiences, people who have told us their stories. To them we offer our grateful thanks...

‘The acting is brilliant...nuanced interactions evoke a sense of real life unreliability and idiosyncrasy.’

6th Stroud Theatre Festival reviews

‘That is my story.’

‘A hard hitting piece of important theatre.’

Audience members reviews.

Steve Richards:

JDJB and TLBB Productions' play TangleTree is a fictionalised story based on research.

Many people came forward with their stories of survival through brain injury. Stories of despair, hope, bravery and love.


More recently after seeing an item on the BBC about Steve Richards and his Mum Ali, we felt we wanted to help raise awareness of Steve, his need for funding  and his continuing journey.

Their story touched our hearts.
