Website Immediate Theatre
Immediate Theatre are providing a free 2-week tour of our new production to schools in Hackney in November 2022. We are also considering a second run in Spring 2023.
Pressure Drop explores societal pressures on young people, the risks of personal safety, and the power of friendships.
London is heating up; temperatures reach the 30s as tensions between the postcodes rise.
We follow four young people from Eastbrooke Secondary over the course of a week. Two strangers meet for the first time in isolation, while two childhood friends bunk school and meet in the park. As the week progresses, they learn about each other’s hopes, fears and vulnerabilities whilst trying to navigate the complicated world around them.
An unexpected friendship proves powerful, and a lifelong bond is tested.
There will be two performances a day, with the work taking place exclusively during the daytime, except for a potential evening performance for the general public (TBC). All members of the company will be required to facilitate some elements of the workshop package and assist the Stage Manager with get-ins and get-outs. All members of the company must have the ability to travel easily to and throughout Hackney. Driving licence is an advantage. All members of the company will be required to have a DBS check.
