What’s on at Roundabout for schools?

  • Really Big and Really Loud – Friday 1 October, 10am.
    A play for young people (KS1 / KS2) by award-winning writer Phoebe Eclair-Powel.
    It’s a story about losing your voice and going on a big adventure to find it again. It features a 10-year old girl called Charli, a rageful rhino, a very helpful fly called Stephen and some really good songs about chips.
    Tickets are £4 per child, teachers come free.
  • May Queen – Friday 1 October, 1pm.
    Suitable for year 10+. Sixteen-year-old Leigh has been chosen as May Queen, she’s buzzing, as is the rest of the city. The cider is flowing and St George’s flag is flying – but an encounter during the day’s festivities will soon change everything. As the year moves on, Leigh must face up to the events of that hot May Day, and dig deep within herself to ask – how did she get here? Contains themes of consent, sex & assault, strong language, drug & alcohol references and usage.
    Tickets are £6 per student, teachers come free.
