Reliably informed

Live Theatre’s forthcoming productions of Your Voice, Your Future are a tantalising prospect: eight plays by eight writers and one question: what is the future we want for ourselves and how might the world be reimagined?

To get some answers to that question, Live Theatre sought out a cohort of emerging writers/artists from the North East, and found Lydia Brickland, Miles Kinsley, Lizzie Lovejoy, Fleur Nixon, Nic O’Keeffe, Susannah Ronnie, Jenni Winter and Jack Young, who have each been commissioned to create, as the theatre’s creative producer Graeme Thompson states:stories that reflect a contemporary North East and its future, [providing] a glimpse into life today and a boldly imagined future.”

And boy, have they delivered! From Thursday 15th-Sunday 18th September, Your Voice, Your Future takes in prospects as broad as eventful lunch breaks, cabaret, the prospect of a wall dividing England and Scotland, free speech, labels, the rise and fall of a Northern Prime Minister, the pains of coming of age and the emotional journey of returning home after a sore break-up. It’s eclectic, enthralling and a glorious showcase of the wonderfully diverse and fresh talent that the region’s producing.

Your Voice, Your Future is at Live Theatre, Newcastle from Thursday 15th-Sunday 18th September.
