Dungeness
Written by Chris Thompson
Performed by The Boaty Theatre Company

In a remote part of the UK, where nothing ever happens, a group of teenagers share a safe house for LGBT+ young people.
While their shared home welcomes difference, it can be tricky for self-appointed group leader Birdie to keep the peace. The group must decide how they want to commemorate an attack that happened to LGBT+ people, in a country far away. How do you take to the streets and protest if you’re not ready to tell the world who you are? If you’re invisible, does your voice still count? A play about love, commemoration and protest.

 

These Bridges
Written by Phoebe Éclair Powell
Performed by Thomas Rotherham College

When the Thames bursts its banks and submerges London, the north and the south of the city become separated. Myths abound about ‘the other side’ – is it really better? Four sets of teenagers ignore the risks of the treacherous crossing, to find out whether the other side is all it’s cracked up to be. Meanwhile a chorus of drowned commuters from the Circle Line conjure memories of the past. These Bridges looks at a fearful future and seeks to show that if we stick together, we may just survive it all.

Running time: About 2 hours and 5 minutes (including a 15 minute interval)
