In Our Own Words
Produced by Justine Themen and Janthi Mills.
In Our Own Words marked the the Belgrade’s first festival of theatre by and for young people in its brand new theatre following its reopening in 2008. It began with The First Time I Saw Snow, a magical piece for 7-13 year olds about the discovery of new worlds, which had just returned from a highly successful tour of local schools. Following closely on its heels was Look Twice, the new show from the ground-breaking Acting Out project – a must for any teenager frustrated with the lack of adult understanding in their lives. Finally, the Coventry thriller The Last Heroes by Nick Walker took audiences on a rollercoaster ride through time and space.
