We are pleased to announce that award winning theatre maker Andy Smith is heading to Brighton Festival this May, and he is taking two shows with him.
Brighton audiences will be getting a very first glimpse of Andy’s new play, via two previews. Summit, a new play, written and directed by Andy, is performed with integrated British Sign Language. Exploring ideas of language, rhetoric and how we communicate with each other, over three acts and in three different ways, Summit tells the story of a meeting. A meeting organised to discuss and resolve a potentially catastrophic situation. This situation. Our situation. (The Spire, 8-9 May 2017)
Following this, Andy will himself be performing his critically acclaimed show, The Preston Bill. Continuing his UK tour, and equipped only with a chair and a small ukulele, Andy tells the story of Bill from Preston. This story reflects on the socio-political and historical shifts of the last eighty years by placing everyday moments alongside global events. This performance will be British Sign Language-interpreted. (The Spire, 10 May 2017)
