We would like to work with a Designer for our next production, Quiet Rebels, opening at The Belgrade Theatre in Coventry on Saturday 10 September 2022.

The play is set in 2028, in an imagined, dystopian future, England is a country isolated and gripped by economic collapse….  In this dystopian world, white women who married “coloured” men and raised their children, are seen as race-traitors. The question is posed: “Why were these women treated as if they committed a crime against society?”
