Details

An original devised piece exploring the impact of war – created by Project X, the performance strand of Our Space.

In War Torn we meet a spectrum of characters, all from Plymouth but from different walks of life. Each are dealing with the impact of war in their own, sometimes surprising, way. From ignorance to compassion, from loss to gain, War Torn holds a lens up to a community to explore how it is affected by war.

Combining movement with original text and documentary footage, this new short tackles universal themes of war within our immediate locality.

Recommended for everyone aged 14+

About Our Space

Our Space is the Theatre Royal Plymouth’s drama programme for adults who feel unable to access other arts provision. Members come from all walks of life, some may have faced challenges involving homelessness, mental health issues, substance misuse or re-offending, or they may feel excluded for other reasons.

Project X is geared towards longer standing members of Our Space who have gained drama skills and confidence through Our Space workshop sessions previously and who want to focus on developing pieces of theatre to perform.

Project X members take an active role in determining the starting point, theme and form of each performance project. Members are also responsible for realising all backstage elements of this studio performance.
