“‘Smith’s optimism is infectious’ ” Total Theatre

Written by Andy Smith

Co-directed by Andy Smith and Claire Lamont

Produced by Fuel

"We need to use our imagination. We need to imagine that change might be possible. That change is possible, however hard or impossible it might seem.” 

In a blend of languages, including fully integrated BSL, three performers tell a story from three perspectives. It is the story of an international meeting. A meeting at which something happened, and in that moment everything changed.

Exploring equality and inviting action, SUMMIT is the new play by renowned theatre-maker Andy Smith (The Preston Bill).

“Smith’s optimism is infectious” - Total Theatre Magazine 

Co-commissioned by South Street in association with University of Reading, Brighton Festival, Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, UCLan/Derelict and Lancaster Arts. Supported by Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Unity Theatre, Liverpool and the Peggy Ramsey Foundation. Funded by Arts Council England.

Age guidance: 14+ 


SUMMIT is performed in English and BSL, and is accessible for both Deaf and hearing audiences.
