In a remote part of the UK, where nothing ever happens, a group of teenagers share a safe house for LGBT+ young people. While their shared home welcomes difference, it can be tricky for
self-appointed group leader Birdie to keep the peace. The group must decide how they want to commemorate an attack that happened to LGBT+ people, in a country far away. How do you take
to the streets and protest if you’re not ready to tell the world who you are? If you’re invisible, does your voice still count?

A play about love, commemoration and protest.
Part of the National Theatre Connections Festival 2018, The Boaty Theatre Company bring this funny, moving and important play to Storyhouse for one night only.

The Boaty Theatre Company

The Boaty Theatre Company are a specialist theatre company based in Ellesmere Port, which bridges the gap between the ‘professional’ and ‘nonprofessional’ in the dramatic, creative and performing arts industry. Through our consistent engagement with young people, vulnerable adults and socially isolated members of the local community we strive to build confidence and self-esteem, enhancing physical and mental well-being whilst developing and promoting the individual creative talents of all involved.

As an acknowledgement of our excellence of practice, our youth theatre company have been selected to work with National Theatre as part of their nationwide Connections Festival 2018.
National Theatre Connections is one of the UK’s largest celebrations of youth theatre. Plays are commissioned for and about young people from some of the best contemporary playwrights and are performed all over the UK and Ireland.
As the only representing theatre company for Ellesmere Port involved in this year’s festival , The Boaty Theatre Company are delighted to be staging the brand new, original LGBT+ youth stage play, Dungeness by Chris Thompson (a former social worker turned professional playwright) across Cheshire West during LGBT+ History Month.
