A Curious Monkey & Northern Stage Co-Production in Association with Derby Theatre.

Written by Lindsay Rodden | Directed by Amy Golding

Four seasons, four people, from four corners of the world, and a teenage girl’s message in the sky.

The strange city folds and unfolds around them, like a maze of paper. A story that opens up like a book that they can get lost in.

A powerful new play by Irish playwright Lindsay Rodden – HERE is about finding sanctuary in the unlikeliest of places. About dancing on rooftops, blossom in winter, and re-writing the story of the city as your own. About two best friends with a library card, and the power they summon through friendship and books to make something magical. To say WE WERE HERE.

Curious Monkey have been working alongside people seeking sanctuary in Newcastle/Gateshead and Derby and children from Byker to create ‘HERE’. People from all over the world including Sudan, Syria, Angola, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Iran, Zimbabwe, Kosovo, Bangladesh, Congo, Nigeria and Byker.

HERE is part of the Arriving Project – Curious Monkey’s ongoing work with people seeking sanctuary in the North East and Derby.
