Erica is determined to be a fashion designer, but why would she want to leave the town she grew up in? Or go to university? Why can’t she help look after her mum? With the rule-book set against her, Erica must decide whether to stick to her guns or follow the advice of those around her. Devised with the Beacon Youth Theatre Senior Members, Threads is a look at the choices facing young people today and the cost of pursuing their dreams.
First presented a double-bill with How To Save The World…ish.
The primary aim of this production was to introduce improvisation-based devising techniques, ensemble movement, and dramatic structure to a wide range of ability and accessibility requirements. Their work received great praise from Youth Theatre Arts Scotland, and the project highlighted as an example of quality inclusive work.
