Big Year Ten
To mark Barrow Youth Theatre's tenth year the company put together a festival of six short plays. Three were devised by the company members, two written by Youth Theatre members, and a rehearsed reading of new writing that had only been produced once before.
Night one – Family night
A puppet show devised by the company

Ginger is a cat, but no ordinary cat . . . HE CAN TALK. Ginger is the hilarious story of how he learnt!

There’s something in the attic . . . Kia has lost his mobile phone. When his sister starts getting weird texts from the lost phone, things start to get creepy. A funny and heart-warming story about a family of stepbrothers and sisters trying to get on.
Night two – Plays with BYTe
by Robin Lennox
Tough lads (not) hanging about on street corners and the heist of the century (well no!) - they haven’t got the brains but they do have a younger brother.
Devised by the cast. Three teens on their way to Liverpool, in the worst car in the world. When the car breaks down things go from bad to worse. A road movie with no travelling.
by Jeff Williams
It's 1974, Northern Soul rules the north of England; big dance moves, big collars and big laughs with a splash of double diamond.
