Your town is teetering on the brink. Imminent destruction looms and time is running out to have your say…
Welcome to our town, a small, remote, picturesque mining town.
‘The Town Meeting’ is an original interactive and immersive piece of theatre. You become a resident, assisted only by shambolic Junior Planning Officer Benjamin Rennold, YOU will be forced to make the biggest decision in the history of the town!
Inspired by research into how communities decide what’s important and why, the show shines a light on Britain’s fast changing political landscape.
Suitable for ages 14+
This play explores how communities react to external pressures and seek to represent themselves. Rather than research participants, the audience will be co-investigators. As part of a research project at Newcastle University a member of the company will be making a written record of the performance but no personal information will be taken nor will anyone or their views be identifiable in the published research. There will be an opportunity to be credited as co-researchers
