This autumn, fires will light up across the UK with people sharing in one of the original forms of theatre: storytelling around a fire.
The Signal Fires will signal the vibrancy of touring theatre – and the threat our industry continues to face.
From spectacular bonfires to digital blazes, the nation’s leading touring theatre companies, including Middle Child, will present a series of performances across the country, in celebration of our fundamental need to tell stories.
- See the full list of participating companies on the Signal Fires website.
Our Futures is Middle Child’s contribution to the project, a collection of eight short plays, written during lockdown in the spring, to be told beneath the stars at Humber Street Gallery, in Hull, on Bonfire Night (Thursday 5 November).
Our Futures is eight shots of hope that draw on the transformative potential of rage, family, lentils and stopping to draw breath.
Tickets are free but limited, so we’re holding a ballot to ensure that everyone who would like to see the work has a fair chance of doing so.
See our Signal Fires event listing for more details about the performances and to enter the ballot for tickets.
