Mandala Theatre Company presents

Castaways

Three teenagers – born on the same day, in the same town but with very different backgrounds.  

Inseparable since they were knee-high to a grasshopper, they’re a close-knit trio, both at school and at home. Sam, Asha and Kieran watch out for each other, until one day a shocking event blows their teenage world apart – and their friendship with it. 

Castaways explores the nature of friendship, trauma and tribal loyalties in a neighbourhood where the blue touch paper is waiting to be lit… 

Mandala is a diversity-led company creating exciting new theatre, which gives a dramatic voice to young people whose stories are not normally heard. Written by award winning playwright Atiha Sen Gupta, Castaways has been developed through creative workshops with young people, exploring their sense of connectedness – or otherwise – with the communities they have grown up in. Castaways is the second of three commissioned plays, which all have social justice at their heart.

There will be a chance to discuss the issues raised in the play at a post-show discussion.

This performance is priced on a Pay What You Decide basis, which means that tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience. Click here to find out more.
