Directed by Philip J Morris
The Maria

To celebrate 25 years of Taking Part, our three strands (Learning, Participation and Neighbourhood Theatre) will come together to create a promenade performance piece which shines a light on the voices and stories of our community members. Of The Cut will be led by a team of multi-disciplinary creatives, fusing film, stage, sound, imagery and story together through the lens of magical realism. Of The Cut will provide an insight into the many lives lived on and around The Cut, and also explore what the next 25 years has in store for our vibrant community.

Performed across multiple locations including Southwark College and The Maria, Young Vic

Part of Taking Part 25, a season of work celebrating 25 years of the Young Vic’s creative engagement department.
