Theatre REVIEW: Protest - ★★★★★

Co-commissioned and co-produced by Fuel, Imaginate and Northern Stage in association with National Theatre of Scotland.

Running is Alice’s happy place. She’s the best runner at her school and can outrun everyone, even the boys…but she’s struggling to prove her worth.

Jade is being tested. Racist bullying and history classes that tell a one-sided story sets her on a mission to find out about her heritage and those who came before her.

Meanwhile, litter is piling up in the local forest. All over the world an environmental crisis is looming, the threat of disorder and division is growing. Chloe is determined to make a change, starting with the town.

Three girls prepare to challenge the status quo and tackle injustices in this new play exploring the power of friendship, activism and the believing in your own voice.

Written by Hannah Lavery and directed by Natalie Ibu



The Studio, Monday 29th May (until Wednesday 31st) - Part of Imaginate Festival


Nina (Age 10) - ★★★★1/2

"This show is about three girls that want to make a difference. They want to have equal rights. Alice wants to be able to run in the relay race and Chloe wants to make a difference in the world by litter picking and Jade wants to fight racism and give it the red card. The lights and effects were really good. They climb and do parkour around the set, it's quite exciting and colourful. I really enjoyed it, I would give it 4 and a half stars out of 5. It was minus 0.5 star as it was sometimes quite hard to follow the three stories because it was all happening at once. It was a really good show. Although sometimes it was a bit loud, it was interesting and funny. Hope is important, and be kind, that's what they said at the end of the show. "
