Local tour and Camden People's Theatre
October/November 2017

A new play exploring the relationships between black girls and older black women, made and performed by teenage girls from Company Three with the director Maa-Yarkor Addo.

This fun, brave and loving play is our attempt to unpick what ‘Aunty’ really means. To find her in all her complexities and truths. To have the conversations we never have.

 

Aunty will tour local community groups and venues in October and November 2017.
A co-production with Camden People's Theatre.

Director
Maa-Yarkor Addo

The Act (scratch) 

20 & 21 July 2017, The Yard Theatre
Originally developed as A Few Mississippis, part of Assembly 2017

An experimental new scratch play for the Yard Theatre's First Drafts Festival.

The Act is about love between teenagers. It’s about the way things look and the way things feel. And the difference. It is excruciating anticipation. It is awkward, funny, uncertain, experimental, terrifying.

It could be amazing. It might all go wrong.

 

Created and performed by Bethany Timson, Delilah Sykes, Ellie Benmore, Francisco Rodrigues, Kiki Bowen, Michael Adewale, Pia Richards Glöckner, Syntyche Tongomo & Yaamin Chowdhury

Press

The Act still dances about my head with crystal clarity. This is a show about sex and teenagers, performed by a young cast, Company Three, who have been working together for many years. There is a rare openness about The Act: by the end of the show it feels like I have crouched down next to these teenagers, searched for their pulse and felt it beat.

Here is a company that has learned how to listen to each other without judgment or fear, and who are not afraid to give themselves over completely to the theatre. We eavesdrop on their funny and honest conversations about sex. We watch them them sing and dance, run away and towards each other. The performances feel like the most natural extension of these young actors – as if they have turned themselves inside out just for us. It is a revelation and an honour to watch them perform.
