St John's record secret element to show
We can’t wait to be present our first ever Playmakers Youth Takeover, Thu 31 March and Fri 1 April (2022) at Theatre Royal Winchester. As part of the event, our Playmakers Youth Theatre will be performing Superglue by Tim Crouch as part of the nationwide National Theatre's Connections Festival.
This brand new play tells the story of a group of climate activists gathering at a woodland burial ground to say goodbye to a friend who died during a protest. As they gather, they erect banners and they talk about their pasts and their futures, about peaceful action versus violent action, about how society dismisses them and undervalues their cause.
When asked why people should come and see Superglue, cast member Molly said, “I feel like it’s very relevant and its obviously talking about climate change which is an ongoing issue”. Another cast member, James said, “it’s quite important to do a show about spreading awareness and the environment, and kind of a glimpse into the future where nothing been done”.
As part of the show, we recently welcomed residents from St John's Winchester to Theatre Royal Winchester who were recording a secret element of the show.
It was our pleasure to share stories, a hot drink and time together on our stage with these members of our community and thank them for their time and enthusiasm.
To see the result of their hard work, be sure to attend our Playmakers Youth Takeover, Thu 31 March and Fri 1 April at Theatre Royal Winchester.
