The summer residency in 2013 ran from Monday 22 July – Saturday 10 August. This year, in accordance with themes being explored as part of the long-term collaboration process between the North Wall and Awake Projects, the young company focused on a physical and textual exploration of riot and recession, with the main presentation consisting of a work-in-progress sharing of Tom Wainwright’s new play Altogether Now.
This piece, begun during last year’s Outreach Project (Crash! 2012), has now entered its second phase of development, co-directed once again by Lucy Maycock and Christopher Sivertsen in the third year of the North Wall / Awake Projects collaboration. The final performance also included rehearsed readings of plays written by the two young writers taking part in this year’s project: Having a Ball by Robert Holtom and The Lotus Eaters by Emma Kelley.
