Lonely Town Scripts

4 April, 2022

Following the launch of Lonely Town, Bounce Theatre is delighted to be making the scripts available and free for schools.

Lonely Town was created with young people at Anstee Bridge.

The work was a collaboration between the students, theatre designers and a writer. Designing in response to an initial set of monologues, writers sat in on sessions to listen to the students talk about loneliness, answer questions and make suggestions about themes relevant to their life.

In response, a new script was written – tackling life post pandemic, grief, dyslexia, moving house and anxiety. It lasted the length of a soap opera episode and made its debut to over 100 people supporting Anstee Bridge on the 31st March 2022 – including local councillors and MPs.

Three versions of the script were written – for a cast of six, two and three. They each entwine monologues with chorus work & short scenes. They are bound together in PDF and available for teachers to use and perform, for free. For more details please email
