CYTO Summer Sizzle

CYTO present a double bill of 'Fogged' by Maryhee Yoon and 'The Border Wall' by Reuben Massiah, performed by our members aged 8 to 15


About The Project:

The Summer Sizzle is a brand-new CYTO programme created by our Artistic Director, Andrew McPherson and supported by Arts Council England. In only two weeks, two brilliant groups of young people aged 8-11yrs and 12-15yrs have created two brand new one-act plays based on the theme of community. The Shoestring Theatre will play host to these dynamic performances as they feature as a double bill on 20th August at 3pm and 7pm. Our two acting company were supported by a third company of young people who learned about stage management, set and costume design, marketing, sound and lighting as well as helping to run front of house.

After the fog came Elderhain, a society of children trying desperately to stay alive. They have their jobs, they know their places, and they have found peace. But at what cost?

Join us for this daring tale that will leave you asking, what does it take for a community to survive?


'The Border Wall'

Devised and performed by CYTO's Summer Sizzle 12-15yrs company

Thirty years in the future on the last remaining island of Ethereal, we meet a community surviving after nuclear war has devastated the planet. Despite living on either side of a ginormous wall, Tam and Flow remain the best of friends, sneaking visits when the border guards aren't looking. With a new leader in power, devastation looms again as they seek to remove the wall and seize power of the last remaining island on the planet. How will Tam and Flow survive the onslaught?
