Hannah Lavery’s latest play ‘Protest’ for UK 2024 tour


Hannah Lavery’s latest play ‘Protest’ for UK 2024 tour

Fuel, Imaginate and Northern Stage in association with National Theatre of Scotland present Protest…

Natalie Ibu’s acclaimed production of Hannah Lavery’s new play Protest will embark on an extensive tour in early 2024. Following highly successful runs in both Newcastle and Edinburgh and a tour throughout Scotland, the show will return to both Newcastle and Edinburgh as well as tour stops in London, Nottingham, Harrogate, Cambridge, Colchester, Coventry, Poole, Plymouth and Exeter.

Protest follows Alice, Jade and Chloe. Running is Alice’s happy place – you might even say it’s in her DNA. She’s the best runner at her school but is struggling to prove her worth. Jade is slowly coming to realise that prejudices can be found everywhere, even in the most surprising places.

Realising that her education is ill-equipped to encompass her own history and heritage, and taunted by bullies at school, she knows it’s time to tell her own story. Meanwhile, litter is piling up in the local forest, and all over the world an environmental crisis is looming. Chloe is determined to make a change, starting with the town. The three girls prepare to stand up for what they believe in despite the injustices stacked against them.
