Coracle in partnership with Alphabetti Theatre supported by Arts Council England present
by ARABELLA ARNOTT directed by MATT JAMIE
Pod is a heartfelt drama about identity, dealing with grief, and running away from secrets. Pod was originally scheduled to run in May 2020 but postponed due to the pandemic, and now a play about a family coming together through difficult times seems more appropriate than ever…
