We at Bric à Brac are thrilled to announce we will be bringing our debut ★★★★ show 'Ash' BACK to London for one night only before it sets off on a Spring 2019 tour! 

Based on a true story, 'Ash' explores the life of George Crozier and his journey from his first to his last cigarette. Set against a backdrop of the tobacco industry’s ever-changing advertisements, this “witty and inventive” show (★★★★ The Stage) uses object manipulation, movement and live music to explore the highs and lows of a life-long love affair with smoking. 

Up until the last puff, it’s an addictive story of a Yorkshire community that aren’t planning to quit anytime soon. 

Theatre Company Reviews:

★★★★★ Fringe Guru

"Ash remains commendably focussed on a specific family, in a specific place at a specific time.  But the story is also a universal one; there can't be many in the audience who aren't in some way entangled in its theme.  So despite the levity, despite the humour, despite the dance, this is a troubling and deeply moving play." 

★★★★ A Younger Theatre
“Ash really is a powerful, highly enjoyable piece that displays some serious talent from a new and exciting company”.

★★★★ The Stage
“Inventive staging treats a serious subject lightly without trivialising it.”

★★★★ The List
“It might not seem right to have an hilarious show focused on the habit of smoking, but Bric à Brac theatre company have pulled it off in this startling show.”

★★★★ Broadway Baby
“A powerful tragic play (that is) charming, endearing and funny.”
