WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Across the UK there are thousands of people who have stopped playing. There are guitars propped up in bedrooms that haven't been strummed in years. Trumpets that got packed away after the brass band played its last gig. Drum kits taking up too much space in garages. Unfolding Theatre is developing a show that explores why we stop playing and what it might take to get us started again. They are working with a team of talented, imaginative theatre-makers and musicians, including singer and guitarist Ross Millard (The Futureheads, Frankie & The Heartstrings) and performer Alex Elliott (who has collaborated with Kneehigh, Northern Stage, Quarantine, Traverse Theatre and used to play bass clarinet).
