We're hugely excited that our new production, Boy on the Roof, opens at Shoreditch Town Hall, London this week - part of MimeLondon 2024.
The show, exploring ADHD, loneliness, aging, hearing loss, connection and community, previewed last week at The Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton to excellent feedback and we can't wait to be part of the inaugural MimeLondon, where we are one of eight companies presenting work new to London. Boy on the Roof runs from Thursday 1st - Sunday 4th Feb at Shoreditch Town Hall, London, EC1V 9LT (Thu - Sat 7.30pm, Sun 2.30pm).
Boy on the Roof has been in development for the last two years. Created through Community Conversations - in person and online sessions held across the UK where everyone is invited to attend and share stories and experiences - the piece tells the story of teenager Liam, who has ADHD, and the growing friendship between him and his 91 year old neighbour, Albert, who has just lost his wife.
Like all Vamos Theatre work, the show is non-verbal, which means no spoken words are used, and the focus is on movement. Music and sound are used throughout to support the narrative.
After opening at Shoreditch Town Hall, the production tours nationally until March 9th.
