What is it?
Spectacle Theatre will present a one-off performance of Special by Paul Swift on Wednesday 25th October at the Cardiff and Vale College in Cardiff.
During the past two years Special has been performed to over 3,400 young people across Wales, England, Romania and Greece, engaging with many hard to reach and seldom heard groups.
Special is the story of a man called Terry and an 11-year-old girl called Megan. The story takes place over three days and begins when Megan and her friends go to the park after school to meet a ‘guy’ called Terry. The children tease Terry and run away, but Megan leaves her bag. When she returns, Terry has it. Megan finds out that Terry isn’t what she thought, and they have more in common than she could have imagined.
Spectacle Theatre was established as the Theatre in Education company for Mid Glamorgan in 1979, and has developed into an International award-winning company specialising in participatory theatre. Its work has reached out to some of the most isolated communities in the Welsh Valleys, young people in the criminal justice setting, as well as winning awards at the Shanghai International theatre festival. Its creative partnerships extend to schools, colleges, young offender’s institutes, hospitals, private companies, social enterprises and community organisations.
