The Last Newspaper - Thursday 23 & Friday 24 March

Over the past seven months, Dr Rachel King (Centre for Education Studies) has been working with The Belgrade’s Canley Youth Theatre, Jouvan Fucinni (Youth Theatre Director) and Angela Evans (Youth Worker, Coventry Integrated Youth Services) to explore young people’s feelings about their future. We have been asking what they hope for, what they care about and what they fear and loathe. This ensemble performance of The Last Newspaper invites you into a dystopian fairy tale world of post-truth and alternative facts. This event aims to provoke discussion about the ways theatre and performance can foster young people’s sense of civic engagement.

Running time: Approx 40 mins followed by a short Q&A with the cast and directors.

The Last Newspaper will be performing at the following venues;

Thursday 23 March, 6pm
Humanities Studio, (H076 Humanities Building)
University of Warwick
