Crash Test is a scratch night which oﬀers writers and performers the chance to share work in development in a supportive environment. Previous scratch nights have included comedy sketches, cabaret, plays, radio,short film scripts, storytelling, poetry, performance art and stand-up comedy.
The Storehouse is a Grill and Cocktail Bar in the ground floor of the iconic Rummers Wine Bar. The building, which was originally built as a mill storehouse, was also the site of the very first theatre space in Aberystwyth from about 1818 in which the renowned actress Sarah Siddons performed.
The evening is hosted by performance artist, writer and stand-up comedian James Baker who brings a very innovative style to the evening creating a fun, hilarious and unique experience for audience.
Sandra Bendelow said, “Anyone is welcome to come along to Crash Test and try out a poem, a short story, anything they are working on, or if they have a short play or a bit of a longer piece and they want it to be performed we have lots of wonderful actors who will perform it. In the first one we had someone performing his own poetry for the very first time, he was brilliant, absolutely loved the experience and he’s really excited about writing more. That is what
Crash Test is all about, giving the chance for people to have a go at writing and performing. Storehouse at Rummers Wine Bar is such a lovely intimate, homely space that it works perfectly for Crash Test. Audiences always enjoy the evening because it’s fun and exciting and people get to see work at its earliest stages, there is always a range of styles and subjects so there’s something for everyone.”
