Summer Theatre Project – COMING SOON

Aug 20th - 24th

Waterford Youth Arts in association with Garter Lane Arts Centre presents, a new devised play by director Grace Dyas and the 15 – 19 year old Drama Members of WYA.

This play will explore some of the most important issues faced by young people today – Climate Change, Mental Health and control over our own bodies. Last February Grace came to Waterford and spent two days discussing ideas and figuring out with the 25 member cast what they wanted to explore. They now will start the next stage of creating the work in early July and the play will be staged in August.
