2015 Bryan Forbes Assistant Director Matt Harrison, fresh from the critically acclaimed production of The Fall, directs the world premiere of this electric story of escapism, grief and the pressures to succeed by NYT Associate Artist Mark Weinman (Sex Ed).
TORTOISE is performed by young talent from the National Youth Theatre's Playing Up Company.
Playing Up is part of National Youth Theatre's commitment to social inclusion.
This accredited nine month drama course offers a second chance to young people who have fallen out of education or employment, offering them the opportunity to gain access to further training or employment.
As technology continues to consume us, there are more and more places to hide.
This brand new play asks at what point does reality come knocking on its virtual sibling's door?
"Escape get away.
Just remember to stop before you forget where you are"
Sometimes things just go missing.
And when the thing closest to Luna goes missing, she finds the perfect place to hide.
A virtual landscape that she understands.
A place where pixels allow her to be whoever she wants to be.
A place where your friends are usernames and where the young can finally take some control.
