Production in progress
Three friends sit on a roof of a tower block watching the demolition of a local community space to make way for new buildings. As they feel the world closing in around them, they realise how much they will miss the things they never realised they took for granted.
Space to escape the noise at home.
Space to fall in love and mend a broken heart.
Space to breathe when the world becomes too much.
Written against the backdrop of 2020 when England was flooded, Greta Thunberg sparked an ocean of global protests and Coronavirus has sent us all indoors. #Extinct explores young people’s mental health and their relationships with green spaces. #Extinct is being written with Anstee Bridge students during a period of lock down to give them space to reflect upon their feelings & their hopes beyond.
Anstee Bridge will produce #Extinct as a professionally performed piece of theatre in 2021.
