Mixed Up North
Sun 15 Nov 2009
Based on real events, Mixed Up North is a fiercely funny and moving new play about the difficulties of uniting divided racial communities in the Lancashire mill town of Burnley.
Trish leads a youth theatre group for Asian and White teenagers together. As the harassed and heavily pregnant director Bella struggles to share her artistic vision with these disillusioned young people, the compelling stories of the young stars unfold.
It's the final dress rehearsal: tensions rise and bonds fracture. Can Trish and Bella bring this utopian dream to a triumphant conclusion?
