The Ark presents the world premiere of a brand new theatre show for ages 8+
By Kate Heffernan.
Directed by Tim Crouch.
How far down is yesterday?
On the edge of a town, in the middle of a bog, half way between a school and a housing estate, Rayy and Jo have come to dig a hole. Peat is the story of the things they bury, and the things they find.
With lightness and humour, this new play for children asks big questions about life, death, time and history. A conversation between two 11-year olds who find themselves standing on top of everything that has ever happened, it is a story of friendship, loss, and finding our place in the world.
A show for everyone who has ever wondered where things go when they leave us.
Relaxed Performances: The performances of Peat at 10.15am & 12pm on Thursday 14th and 4pm on Saturday 16th are relaxed performances, perfect for families with children who will benefit from a more relaxed performance environment and who might be anxious about attending the theatre for a range of reasons including autism and sensory and communication disorders.
