Gas Station Angel
Bron is a babe who drives a blue Marina. Ace is her guy but his house has fallen into the sea. His mother believes in fairies, her mother wants her missing son Bri back. Two families, one secret, blown apart in 16 hours 48 minutes of a Saturday night.
In 1998, in co-production with the Royal Court Theatre, Gas Station Angel opened at the Ambassadors Theatre, before touring the UK, Brussels, Copenhagen and Berlin. It has been translated into German, Spanish and Welsh.
Text from Fiction Factory.
"Powerful theatre, rich and strange, great one-liners. Thomas at his fizzingly inventive best."
"…as emotionally moving as it is intellectually satisfying."
Heike Roms, theatre-cymru.co.uk
"…magnificent engaged drama"
Jeni Williams, theatre-cymru.co.uk
"There is something quite wonderful about this alchemical act of transformation. Thomas’ colourful, rhythmic use of languages creates a beguiling and unique poetry… (as) delicately moving as it is robustly funny. Absorbing, enchanting and observant."
What’s On in London
"Theatre junkies should check out Gas Station Angel… dark, strange and very Welsh, as one of the characters puts it. Funny is a stirring and original."
"A wild and whirling talent… The production itself… makes good use of the space. Richard Lynch plays Ace with skill, Siwan Morris is a sexily appealing Bron, and Richard Harrington makes his mark as the blond, bolting Bri."
