“A curious and adventurous piece… happily nothing like your average night out in the theatre”
– British Theatre Guide
The Town Meeting is a performance where you get the chance to experience what it feels like to be part of a community facing a life changing decision.
Set in a fictional town you become a local resident and work together to save your town. You’re in charge of the story as you take big decisions to decide your own future.
It gets you to think about our fast changing political landscape and your place in it. The show brings people together and gives you a chance to speak and listen to different views and opinions.
