Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds is delighted to present another touring production from their Young Company, a ghost story written and devised by the company themselves – Fallout. Touring to three rural venues, Denston Village Hall, Hundon Village Hall and Stoke by Clare Village Barn (20 Mar, 21 Mar and 27 Mar, respectively).
Richie Denning is a young writer trying to appease the ghosts of her past through her writing. When she travels to her local village hall to launch her latest book, she presents some dramatic readings but as she retells the tales the memories start to feel more real than ever before. A story of love, grief, blame and regret; will her new book pull the family back together, or will it all end in tragedy?
The performers, all aged between 16-22, have written and devised this piece amongst themselves during their weekly sessions over the last few months. Using drama techniques such as hot seating, improvisation and deep character work, the script for this new ghost story took shape. Each venue that the show tours to will be presented as the venue for the launch of Richie’s book, providing a more immersive experience for the audience.
In 2018, the rural touring model was established with Murder At… which toured to four different venues to great success. Fallout is directed by Annie Eddington (long standing director of Theatre Royal’s ever popular Takeover Programme) and produced by Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds. The Youth Theatre is sponsored by Anglia Suspended Ceilings and the theatre is grateful for their ongoing support of the youth programme at Theatre Royal.
Fallout has three performances across three separate venues: Denston Village Hall, Fri 20 Mar, 7.30pm; Hundon Village Hall, Sat 21 Mar, 7.30pm; and Stoke by Clare Village Barn, Fri 27 Mar, 7.30pm.
