Newport, Wales. Jimmy works in a doughnut shop. Kitty works for an adult chat line. Neither has met the other. Until, one day, this changes. Until, one day, Jimmy begins to vanish off the face of the earth. How My Light Is Spent is a lyrical, aching, joyous comedy about the unexpected places where love hides itself.

DIRECTORS’ CUTS SEASON 2019

The Directors’ Cuts season is a programme of contemporary theatre presented by the four graduating directors from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and featuring work by acting, design and production students. Now in its thirteenth year and at The Wardrobe Theatre for the third time, the Directors’ Cuts season is firmly established in the Bristol theatre calendar. It has a reputation for showcasing fresh, vibrant and cutting edge theatre work by some of the finest emerging talent in UK theatre. Diverse and highly charged, this is a season of provocative plays which all have an important relevance in today’s society.

“Contemporary drama with extraordinary insightfulness, vivacity and theatrical prowess.”
