Quite simply one of the most brilliant things i’ve ever worked on. I have collaborated with Louie Ingham for over ten years and she has been fundamental to my understanding of how to think about music in theatre and story telling. Louie has devised a style of work with young companies that confronts world issues through the microcosm of day to day lives using multiple overlapping narratives and gig style theatre events.
Where Do We Stand? at Northern Stage is a pinnacle of this form of theatre. Directed by Louie collectively written by Lee Mattinson, Laurence Wilson and members from the Northern Stage Young Company it is one of the most moving, tragic, funny, challenging and vital pieces of theatre for a modern age i’ve ever seen.
Following performances at Northern Stage, Where Do We Stand? will be performed at the Festival of European Youth Theatre at Birmingham Rep. Dates TBC.
