Description

"The entire cast show great confidence producing a thought-provoking, emotional and entertaining performance" - NE Theatre

Presented by the Young People's Theatre

This week a cast of fifteen of our YPT members aged 12 to 16 take to the Studio Theatre stage with James Fritz’s START SWIMMING.

George Orwell’s 1984 meets The Hunger Games in this thought-provoking drama about oppression and revolution, asking what power young people have to affect change and resist authority.

The play was originally developed by the Young Vic Taking Part department and it subsequently transferred to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Striking a complicated balance between optimism and cynicism, the play ultimately makes a galvanising case for solidarity in the face of a prevailing system which promises little to the young people of today.

The play is suitable for anyone aged 12+
