Island Town

29 Jun

Kate, Sam and Pete are stuck in a dead end town but they’ve got cheap cider and their whole lives ahead of them. They’re going to break away – all roads lead somewhere else, right?

Catherine is a Theatre Director, playwright and actor. She is the co-founder and director of theatre company Theatre Unlocked. Unlocked’s debut play Flushed, which was written and directed by Catherine, has performed to sell-out audiences, received multiple awards and numerous five star reviews. Flushed has toured multiple UK venues, including Underbelly at the 2018 Edinburgh Fringe, and the Barbican Centre in London. Catherine studied Drama at Manchester University, and is currently studying for an MA in Theatre Directing at Mountview.

Lydia is a theatre producer from Sheffield with an undergraduate degree from the University of Leeds in Theatre & Performance. Whilst working in the north of England, she established Big Egg Theatre, a new writing and absurdist theatre company. In 2018, Lydia produced Big Egg Theatre’s first UK Fringe Tour of Bummer and Lazarus. She has also worked with Leeds-based organisations Transform Festival and Slung Low before moving to London to start the MA Creative Producing course at Mountview. Since starting her MA course, Lydia has completed a Producing and Marketing internship with Global Musicals and is taking Ashleigh Laurence’s Tumours to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
