NT Connections Festival 2020 – Day 2
The Marxist in Heaven
by Hattie Naylor | presented by The John Lyon School
When you wake up in paradise (but dead), would you get straight back to work? Would you continue to struggle for equality and fairness in all?
Funny, playful, provocative, pertinent and jam-packed with discourse, disputes, deities and disco dancing by the bucketful, this upbeat buoyant allegory shines its holy light on globalization and asks the salient questions – who are we? What are we doing to ourselves? And what conditioner do you use on your hair?
by Alison Carr | presented by Harrow Youth Theatre
Tuesday is light, playful and nuanced. And a little bit sci-fi.
On an ordinary Tuesday, stuff suddenly turns very weird indeed when a tear rips across the sky over the school yard. Not only that, but it starts sucking up pupils and staff while at the same time raining down a whole new set of people. That’s what happens when parallel worlds collide.
Confusion reigns as the ‘Us’ and ‘Them’ try to work out what is going on. How are Ash and Magpie identical? Can Billy cope with having his sister back? Who is Franky?
