  • The Isle of Brimsker

    The Tramshed, 51-53 Woolwich New Road, SE18 6ES

    ages 13+

    A lighthouse keeper lives on a desolate outcrop surrounded by stormy seas. Duty bound to maintain the light that guides boats away from danger, she lives a solitary existence. Until one day a runaway lands on the shore and together they face the inevitable. Change is on the horizon but not in the form she expects.

    How do you survive when faced with the biggest decisions of your life? Would you change the world or change yourself?

    A new multi-sensory story from Frozen Light, specialists in making theatre for audiences with Profound and Multiple Learning Disabilities.

  • Hannah and Hanna in Dreamland

    The Tramshed

    ages 14+

    Summer 1999. Margate’s beaches are packed with day-trippers…. and its hotels filled with Kosovan asylum seekers – including Hanna (Celia Meiras), a survivor of Europe’s most recent genocide. Hannah (Lisa Payne) is from Margate and bored with life in the rundown seaside town – hanging out with her boyfriend Bull and his prejudiced mates. The only things the two sixteen year olds have in common are their names and their love of singing along to their favourite pop songs….

     

    Sixteen years later, Hanna returns to Margate – this time in search of a Syrian girl she befriended in Kosovo and who may have succeeded in getting across the Channel. The Calais ‘Jungle’ is close and attempts by its residents to reach England fill the local media. Hanna hopes her young friend will be welcome in Margate, but although the town has changed, alongside the coffee bars and vintage shops, there is still an undercurrent of hostility towards the migrants and refugees who are so desperate to enter the UK.

     

    Just as in 1999, when Hanna’s arrival turned Hannah’s life upside down, so her return takes the friends on a journey which Hannah from Margate would not have thought possible.

     

    Hannah and Hanna in Dreamland builds on John Retallack’s award winning earlier play, Hannah and Hanna, which has been performed extensively both nationally and internationally.

     

    “couldn’t be more topical….. gets right to the heart of the tensions that arise in depressed communities when refugees arrive. It’s funny and sad….. with head butting toughness.”  The Guardian
