Here comes summer…
There are dozens of people on stage, having the time of their lives. How could it be any other way?
All the world’s there – babies, toddlers, teenagers, twenty-thirty-forty-fifty-sixty-seventy-somethings and beyond…. People you might pass in the street or sit next to in a theatre.
Like the cliché says: life’s no rehearsal. The people on stage respond to questions they’ve never heard before and the text gets written as we go along. You never know what might crop up. Real life doesn’t stop when the show starts.
Summer. is about being alive, right now. It’s the first part of an ambitious quartet of performances created by Quarantine over the next 3 years that looks at the human life cycle. Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring. will be made in 4 separate parts then played as a marathon event from 2016.
Join us for the start of it all…
Thursday 5 – Saturday 7 June (previews) & Wednesday 11 – Saturday 14 June 2014
The Warehouse, Regent Trading Estate, Oldfield Road, Salford, M5 4DE.
“There is no company in the UK working quite in the area of Quarantine - a truly wonderful company that uses the lives and experiences of real people as the starting point for all their shows and who put their subjects centre stage and let them speak for themselves.” Lyn Gardner: The Guardian
