FEST 2009

Fest 2009

The Theatre in the Rough Festival 2009 staged two nights of explosive, poetic and comedic new work by young people from across Greater Merseyside.

From the idea of the redemption of ambition on a Merseyrail train halted by a suicide, to a comedic tour of Sefton written entirely in Shakespearean rhyming couplets, these plays were diverse, surprising and challenging.

Theatre in the Rough 2009 took place on 19 — 20 May at the Southport Arts Centre.
