"We need to use our imagination. We need to imagine that change might be possible. That change is possible, however hard or impossible it might seem.”
In a blend of languages, including fully integrated BSL, three performers tell a story from three perspectives. It is the story of an international meeting. A meeting at which something happened, and in that moment everything changed.
Exploring equality and inviting action, SUMMIT is the new play by renowned theatre-maker Andy Smith (The Preston Bill).
