Current Production

The Kettling
The Kettling

A brand new production commissioned this summer by Hungry Wolf Visionary Youth Theatre written by Katherine Manners and directed by Award Winning Katie Beard. Suddenly kettled at a climate change protest on the hottest day of the year, Kelly finds herself trapped with a volatile and unlikely mix of people. Battling to maintain a fragile peace, Kelly is forced to confront and challenge her principles as well as her motives. As the heat intensifies, tensions mount. But in the belly of the kettle, something is born. When people are pushed to their limits it can bring out the best, and very worst, of human nature.
