Inspired by the short stories of Anais Nin, this devised show presents modern fables of love, loss and urban decay.
On the night bus, on the last train, amongst the detritus of deserted pubs and clubs and in the secret corners of the city, pickpocket poets steal the stories of the lost.
Started over thirty two years ago, by Founding Director and continuing Producer Robin Strapp, Newbury Youth Theatre has always operated on the principle that high quality theatre can be made collaboratively with young people. They aim to harness the creativity of the workshop experience, developing ideas using a variety of styles and techniques.
For almost twenty years they have toured a production to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where they have enjoyed many excellent reviews and significant awards.
Given that they are a non-auditioning youth company with a constantly changing cast, their Fringe pedigree is perhaps surprising, yet audiences and critics alike seem to lap them every year.
“A story-telling masterclass... one of the finest family shows you could wish for.”
“Yet another masterly production **** ”
“Storytelling at the highest level, told with vigour”
