    A disturbing picture of contemporary Western society set against a background of urban alienation and violence.

    One of the most popular Spanish playwrights to have emerged in the 1990’s, Sergi Belbel’s Caresses adopts a structure used by Arthur Schnitzler in his controversial 1896 play, La Ronde. Like the play that inspired it, Caresses encapsulates a range of carefully interwoven encounters between various complex personalities, each of whom is attempting to deal with the contradictions and fraught challenges of seemingly normal contemporary relationships. In each case the emotional fragility, passion and sheer danger make for a compelling and often dark social satire.

    The production features students from the Bristol School of Acting BA Foundation year in association with Bath Spa University. For more details on Bristol School of Acting degree programmes visit bristolschoolofacting.com
