Many of us will have felt that life has been turned upside down by recent events, as we have had to adapt to a new way of living and working. For others though, being in the wrong place at the wrong time might have already resulted in life-changing consequences. Wrong Place, Wrong Time, which follows its protagonist Nicky as he tries to navigate the world and find acceptance, explored that idea when it first premiered in 2016 as part of a double-header between the Alphabetti Theatre and homeless charity Crisis.

Wrong Place, Wrong Time was originally performed in response to Ali Pritchard’s How Did We Get To This Point?, which placed as its central focus the question of where the concept of compassion has gone. Its script was originally based on creative writing materials produced by Newcastle’s Crisis Skylight, who produced their own scripts, poems and short stories in a series of workshops hosted by Pritchard. These were then weaved together by Steve Byron to produce the short play. Now, the piece has been adapted into an audio play, which premieres on Wednesday 16th September and will be available online indefinitely. Despite being transformed into a different medium, it’s unlikely that Wrong Place, Wrong Time will lose any of the raw power and passion that characterised its original run. Instead, it’s likely to remain a vital piece on the battle between nature vs nurture, continuing to ask searching questions about contemporary society.

Wrong Place, Wrong Time is presented via Alphabetti Online on Wednesday 16th September
