Company Three’s show When this Is Over is a new performance created with seven members of Company Theatre, all aged 14 – 18 and all from the local area of Southwark.
While being part of a young generation grappling with the global crisis, the cast share with us the extraordinary, funny and sometimes embarrassing small moments that make up a life – from childhood pasts, to the impossible imagined hope of what is to come.
Created and performed by Kezia Adewale, Bailey Charalambous, Shilton Freeman, Mackenzie Gardiner, Shyhiem Hossain-Heath, Allegresse Kabuya and Love Omolola, it gives voice to their stories and experiences and their hopes and aspirations.
Company Three is one of the UK’s leading youth theatres creating work through long-term, intensive collaboration between young people (aged 11-19) and professional theatre-makers. They give teenagers the power to tell their own stories and make their own change; to be listened to, understood, and celebrated. Their practice is developed through deep-rooted relationships locally and shared practice globally to impact teenagers everywhere. Age guide: for everyone aged 11
When this Is Over is a chance for these young people to have their say, staged to coincide with the international climate change conference (COP26) this November as world leaders gather to determine our collective future.
Company Three are collaborating with youth theatre and school groups across the UK, supporting them as they have created a blueprint for the show which helps them to make their own versions of When This Is Over.
The show will premiere at the Unicorn for six performances only, over October half term.
