A meeting is called. You are invited.

There is a crisis. Your voice is needed.

Previewing at this years’ Festival, and performed in British Sign Language and English by a cast of three, Summit is a new play written and directed by award-winning theatre maker Andy Smith (Adler & Gibb, what happens to the hope at the end of the evening).

Exploring ideas of language, rhetoric and how we communicate with each other, over three acts and in three different ways Summit tells the story of a meeting. A meeting organised to discuss and resolve a potentially catastrophic situation. This situation. Our situation.

Co-commissioned by South Street in association with University of Reading, Brighton Festival, Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, UCLan/Derelict and Lancaster Arts. Supported by Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Unity Theatre, Liverpool and the Peggy Ramsey Foundation. Funded by Arts Council England.
