Our youth theatre production

Directed by Pauline Armour and Jessica Ann Jenner

Two stand alone one act plays: different though strangely similar. Absurdism meets realism, detailed characters combine with grand ideas, comedy meets darkness.

‘Us and Them’ (David Campton)

Two groups of wanderers look for a place to settle. They agree to share the land and mark out their territories – but how to keep their chickens in the right territory leads to a radical solution out of which mistrust grows leading to an irrevocable conclusion.

‘The Cagebirds’ (David Campton)

A group of eight people is together in a room. They talk, they look at one another but they are locked within their own understanding of the world with its own particular vocabulary – food, beauty, ailments, anxiety, anger, celebrity and gossip. When the master unlocks the door and introduces a new ‘play mate’ who is determined to communicate their cosy world is turned upside down with thrilling and dramatic consequences.

Our BLT Youth Theatre is presenting theatre of high quality and has become an excellent training ground for young people to move through into other productions throughout the season.

Please support their work they are the future of BLT.
