A free international participatory theatre project for young people
Wonder Fools have commissioned some of the UK’s most exciting voices to create new work for those between the ages of 6 and 25.
Artists include Bryony Kimmings, Douglas Maxwell, Hannah Lavery, Debris Stevenson, The PappyShow, Wonder Fools and the Edinburgh Traverse Theatre Young Writer Ellen Bannerman.
The plays are written specifically for the times we are living in and will be free to participating groups from September 2021 — March 2022.
All participating groups will be sent their chosen script to perform rights free, a handbook of exercises to help their group explore, perform and document the play, and given a pin on the map where they will be able to upload and share their final performance with other youth groups around the world.
This year, there’s no set outcome, it’s all about going on a process together. Start with a Positive Stories play as a stimulus and then create anything you want.
