PACE Theatre Company – Making the right Connections!
On the 13th, 14th, & 15th March PACE Theatre Company will be performing at The Wynd Auditorium as part of National Theatre Connections – a nationwide celebration of new plays for young people.
Each year new plays are commissioned for and about young people from some of the best contemporary playwrights, for performance by youth theatres all over the UK and Ireland, making Connections one of the world’s largest celebrations of youth theatre.
Last year PACE’s production of “The Guffin” by Howard Brenton was invited to perform at the National Theatre in London where it wowed critics and audiences alike and this year they will be hoping to emulate that feat with their production of “Heritage” by Dafydd James.
Mayday has dawned in Northbridge, and a group of misfit Youth gather to rehearse their heritage anthem to sing at the celebration. It soon becomes clear however that they have been chosen for a far darker purpose. What has Tubbsy hidden in his bag, why is Mark dressed as a stegosaurus and greater than all what does the Provost know!? Northbridge – a place full of whispers ready to reveal its ‘bloodiest’ secret
PACE’s Mhairi Gilbert who directs the play said “This has been a fantastic opportunity to work with the young actors on a new play and to create a completely original piece of theatre. What the audience can expect is an exciting and vibrant new piece of work which will showcase the talents of these young actors.”
