After months of rehearsals, Warwick Arts Centre’s dedicated Young Company perform Alison Carr’s Tuesday and Silva Semerciyan’s Witches can’t be Burned as part of Connections, the National Theatre’s Youth Theatre programme.
Witches Can’t Be Burned by Silva Semerciyan:
“They ignore what we write. They ignore what we say. It would take a fire to get their attention”
Set against the backdrop of a group of students performing Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, Witches Can’t Be Burned by Silva Semerciyan explores the changing perceptions of gender, protest and equality, putting Miller’s iconic play, its relevance and its politics on trial.
Stratford Youth Theatre CIC has brought together a cast of 16 talented local teenagers for this brand new play as part of the National Theatre’s Connections Programme 2020.
Tuesday by Alison Carr:
After months of rehearsals, Warwick Arts Centre’s dedicated Young Company perform Alison Carr’s Tuesday as part of the National Theatre’s Connection programme 2020.
The play centres on an ordinary Tuesday that suddenly turns very weird indeed when a tear rips across the sky over the school yard. Not only that, but it starts sucking up pupils and staff while at the same time raining down a whole new set of people. But then, that’s what happens when parallel worlds collide! Confusion reigns as the ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ try to work out what is going on. The play touches on themes of friendship, sibling love, family, identity, grief, bullying, loneliness and responsibility.
