Hold Out Your Hand
by Chris Thorpe
This is a fast-paced, truthful, funny and hopeful new play by Chris Thorpe. Reflecting on how weird the last few months have been. It’s a play that celebrates people being together in the same space and asks performers and audiences to reach out and seize what the future holds for them. This is a play about the gaps where young people's voices should be.
Come along and join our Perth Youth Theatre senior group who have performed and created this piece during lockdown 2.0. This performance will be performed online live via zoom.
