Not A Panto!
“We would do this thing on New Year’s Day. Whisper a wish into the wind and it’ll blow it all around the world so the universe can help it come true…” This new play with music from Benjamin Storey is a celebration of Northumbrian identity, folk music and family tradition. It concerns Charlie who dreams of becoming a musician, but those dreams are going nowhere. Sam’s world, meanwhile, feels like a bubble about to burst. As the pair struggle with a sense of belonging and connection, can a chance Christmas encounter unwrap the answers? This production will also feature a short play by Alison Scurfield as a festive curtain raiser. GM
