  • What Once Was Ours

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

    Age 12+

    A Zest Theatre and Half Moon production

    Katie and Callum couldn’t be any more distant and disconnected: different heritage, different cities, different opportunities. Except there is one thing they’ll always have in common: Dad. What happens when Callum suddenly turns up in desperate need of help?

    Created against the background of Brexit, What Once Was Ours has been developed in consultation with young people across the country and uses their direct words and opinions to explore how politics and national values impact on the complex lives of one family.

    Beautiful imagery, striking original music and immersive design combine to create this powerful new production for youngpeople, which asks why we’ve become so fearful of anyone who is different from us.

    What Once Was Ours is a Zest Theatre and Half Moon co-production: an exciting collaboration by two of the UK’s leading companies creating work for young people.

    Supported by public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

    Dates: Monday 30 October 2017

  • Jump Out Of Skin

    The pleasance Theatre, Islington, London N7 9FF

    14+ (Contains some scenes that people may find disturbing)

    The UK premiere of a poetic, funny, hopeful and desperate new play from Slovakian writer Zuza Ferenczova, directed by Tony Casement.

    ‘Girl’ has a problem. ‘Girl’ is fourteen and pregnant. The father is probably her dad, and her two school friends Kika and Ika only want to talk about seducing their P.E teacher. Then she meets ‘Boy’.

    Boy: Do you always drink like that?

    Girl: Not always.

    Boy: Don’t drink more. You smell bad

    Girl: Would you be willing to help me if needed to kill myself a bit?

    Boy: What do you mean a bit?

    Jump out of Skin is about mental health, social isolation, and the crazy, exhilarating, ridiculous experience of being a teen.

    Performed by GLYPT’s Progression Company: an initiative that supports young artists into the creative industries.

    ‘Brilliantly contemporary’ ***** (Lyn Gardener, The Guardian, for Tony Casement’s production of ‘Saturday Night and Sunday Morning’)

    The British arms trade is getting a lot of bad press lately. Bleeding hearts, peaceniks and every lefty liberal with a ‘Momentum’ badge banging on about it.  But how could it be anything but positive selling billions of pounds worth of weapons to loyal customers like Saudi Arabia? (more…)
