Barbara Priestman Academy Theatre Company & Cap-a-Pie present…

Want by Barney Norris

Performed by Barbara Priestman Academy Theatre Company (BPATC) as part of National Theatre Connections.

In 2016, Barbara Priestman Academy were chosen out of over 500 others to bring their production of ‘What are they Like?’ by Lucinda Coxon to the National Theatre stage.  In 2018 they are premiering their new production ‘Want’.









‘Want’ tells the story of 8 young people as they make the transition from childhood to adulthood, something we’ve all gone through.  The play is funny and moving and will make you think about your own experience of that time – the brilliant bits, the difficult parts and the possibilities.

This is one of the first and only chances for you to see this play in the North-East this year and is a great opportunity to support a young and dynamic theatre company.

Directed by Brad McCormick for Cap-a-Pie.
