The Big House, a charity which enables care leavers and at risk young people to fulfil their potential through drama, wraparound support and long term mentoring, have released rehearsal images for the world première of Bullet Tongue by Andrew Day and Sonya Hale, a promenade piece through their new premises in Islington and, which will be developed with and performed by a group of young people at risk of social exclusion. The new building’s inaugural production, directed by Artistic Director and CEO of The Big House, Maggie Norris, opens on 16 November, with previews from 14 November and runs until 8 December.
Maggie Norris, Artistic Director and CEO of The Big House said today, “Our new group will develop and perform Bullet Tongue, a brilliant new play by Andrew Day and Sonya Hale, inspired by their experience. What better way to celebrate the new building than a promenade performance in it? We’ll open our doors and welcome audiences both old and new to come and explore the building in its current state and see the fantastic work we produce, whilst hearing our plans to transform the space. Our new home marks the start of an exciting chapter for The Big House, allowing us the room to support hundreds more young people and stage first class productions in our own theatre space.”
