New Perspectives in association with The Brewery Arts Centre presents
Welcome to the Caribbean. Where the sun is hot and the living is uneasy.
Meet three women. An unlikely trio. Different ages, backgrounds and attitudes. Each has a unique relationship with the island. A home. A regular holiday haunt. A first time visit. Through language that fizzes and sparks, we begin to discover that they share one surprising thing in common.
Trade was first performed in 2005 by the Royal Shakespeare Company, New Perspectives brings debbie tucker green's distinctive voice to a regional audience. Get set for an intoxicating mix of fresh rhythm and raucous humour, as the women come to terms with the transactions that define who they are.

The Hat Factory
The Hat Factory is Luton's leading arts and entertainment venue featuring live music, club nights, theatre, dance, films, children's activities, workshops, classes and gallery exhibitions.
It's a centre of artistic excellence set within a vibrant urban environment. It offers the young and the young at heart the chance to engage with the arts, to be inspired by the UK’s leading arts practitioners, and to develop artistic skills and confidence.
The Hat Factory is a combined arts venue in the centre of Luton. It opened in 2003 and since then has been the area’s main provider of contemporary theatre, dance and music. We work with both emerging and proven producers and artists, through programming, engagement programmes and our Associate Artist scheme. Their music programming is vibrant, offering an eclectic portfolio of high quality artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, folk, world music, indie and hip hop. Complementing their own programming, they welcome local/regional promoters to the venue, broadening their music offer and at the same time supporting young promoters and their businesses. They programme contemporary theatre and dance with a focus on fresh, new and relevant stories from both established and emerging touring companies who are making high quality work in the UK. They’ve programmed companies like Earthfall, Chickenshed, New International Encounter (NIE), Trestle, Menagerie, Eastern Angles, Atma, State of Emergency, 30 Bird, Tavaziva, Analogue and Jean Abreu Dance to name but a few.
The Hat Factory has flexible spaces of various sizes to suit every need. See Venue Hire for more information.
