A fledgling Welsh theatre company will present their new production in an empty shop space in Swansea this weekend, marking another theatrical performance in the Swansea Creative Hub.
The recently-established The Anatomical Theatre will stage the imaginatively-titled The Play That Ate Your Face in a disused retail space in High Street.
The Swansea-based theatre group has been set up by Dan Jenkins and Lucy Beddall, both of whom have studied at Swansea Metropolitan University. Lucy is currently in her third year of a Performing Arts degree while Dan is a graduate in the same subject.

The production will explore themes of fear, survival and heroism, drawing inspiration from cult B-movies and classic horror, including a film touted as the worst ever made, Plan 9 From Outer Space. Other inspirations include Basketcase, The Evil Dead, and Monsters Inc.
The Play That Ate Your Face is on 12 and 13 November at 229 High Street, Swansea. For more information visit The Anatomical Theatre website.
Meanwhile, a previous production that occupied the empty shop space in the creative hub, Volcano Theatre's 1977, plays at the Chapter Arts Centre in Cardiff, also on 12 and 13 November.
