Golf Course War Machine

20 February 2017

Award-winning Aberystwyth Drama and Theatre Studies graduate Chris Harris (2014) is returning to Aber with Golf Course War Machine, produced by No Boundaries theatre / theatr dim ffiniau.


Pippa is dazed, hungover and staging her own protest on the roundabout outside the Celtic Manor on the eve of the NATO summit and she's about to trample down the fence.


Golf Course War Machine is one woman's battle to place Wales in the centre of the global map. A one woman piece - this takes Pippa on a journey from her rural Welsh mining village, to the heart of industry-choked China, through the daze of rock concerts and public protests and back to the roundabout at the Celtic Manor Resort where she will answer the question – when shall we stand up for what we truly believe in? This is a play about the legality of local politics against the face of global politics. At its centre is a story about a girl and her fight to be recognised in the world.


Chris Harris lives and works in South Wales and is an associate artist for No Boundaries Theatre. He is the recipient of the 2016 Richard Carne Playwriting prize following tuition with Brad Birch at the Sherman Theatre. He was successfully chosen for their playwriting programme TAITH in February 2016. His previous writing credits include 'Lovely' (Rehearsed reading, The Other Room, August 2015) and 'Winona' (Aberystwyth Arts Centre). He has worked extensively with Monmouthshire County Council on new work for the National Eisteddfod and with Torfaen Borough Council on theatre in education. In March 2017, he will be working with Cwmni Theatr Arad Goch in developing a new play for young audiences with South African artist Eliot Moleba.
