‘The Crescent’: Two Plays by YTR Youth

The Crescent

Two of York Theatre Royal’s 16-19 Youth Theatre groups present a new site-specific theatre piece inspired by The Crescent, and the stories that may have happened inside.

Why did it take over 30 years for women to get equal membership rights? What do you do with rowdy customers? What was your first gig experience? Project M explore these questions and a few others in a piece about The Crescent’s past and present and what community mean to us today. There’ll be music, dancing, stories… and lollipops.

Director | Julian Ollive
Dramaturg | Henry Raby
Friday 18 & Saturday 19 at January 7pm

A band are about to play their final ever gig. A comedian tries out his new material. Someone plucks up the courage to ask their crush on a date. Project N present a cast of characters populating The Crescent, from the musicians and their promoters on stage, to the old regulars and the staff at the bar, alongside ambitious wannabes and hopeful romantics.

Director | Kate Veysey
Dramaturg | Henry Raby
Friday 18 & Saturday 19 January at 8.15pm & 9.15pm
