ROMA TO ROYAL
Saturday 12 April 2014, 2.30 – 4.30pm
ROMA TO ROYAL is a musical theatre work in progress developed and devised by a group of 15 young men aged 14 - 16 hailing from Romania, living in the heart of Levenshulme (Manchester).
Working over 3 months with practitioners Jason Singh, Jonathan Henry and Jaydev Mistry, the group have explored stories of youth culture newly arrived in the UK. From Roma Motherland to Mancunia, expect BeatBox Orchestra soundscapes weaving through stories of challenge, changes and truths - all created through text, theatre, imagery and music.
Produced by Michelle Udogu. Special thanks to Rev. Caroline Throup and St Peters Church in Levenshulme.
ROMA TO ROYAL is presented in partnership with the Co-operative Foundation as part of Truth about Youth at the Royal Exchange Theatre - a major programme which allows young people to challenge and change negative perceptions about their age group by supporting projects which enable them to work with adults, the media and wider community.

4-4.30pm: Post-show discussion
