Castaways by Mandala Theatre Company

Festival: 2018
Event type: Drama

Event dates:

Tuesday 11th September, 2018 - 7.30pm

Diversity-led Mandala Theatre Company bring to Wirksworth their new play Castaways, as part of their UK Tour.

Three teenagers – born on the same day, in the same town but with very different backgrounds.

Inseparable since they were knee-high to a grasshopper, they’re a close-knit trio, both at school and at home. Sam, Asha and Kieran watch out for each other, until one day a shocking event blows their teenage world apart – and their friendship with it.

Written by award-winning playwright Atiha Sen Gupta and directed by Yasmin Sidhwa, Castaways explores the nature of friendship, trauma and tribal loyalties in a neighbourhood where the blue touch paper is waiting to be lit.

Castaways has been developed through creative workshops with young people, exploring their sense of connectedness – or otherwise – with the communities they have grown up in.

Recommended for ages 13+
