Soup and Sweet Lunch
12 - 2pm Woodmead Hall

Half Moon Young People’s Theatre presents:  How far would you run to find freedom?
A hard-hitting story of two teenagers, brought together through the dynamic discipline of free-running.  Kris and Zara share a city but can’t find a place to rest. Haunting memories mix with an uncomfortable present as they keep on running, unable to face the consequences of their pasts – unable to stop or think for even a moment.  FREE tells the story of two teenagers, brought together through the dynamic discipline of free running, who face life-changing choices when a practice designed for self-improvement and freedom starts to cage them in. FREE asks what we’re running away from and if we’re ever willing to stop and confront what we’ve left behind. 8.00pm   Marine Theatre  Running Time: 1hr (approx) followed by a textback session  Full Price: £10.00  Under 16s: £5.00  TheatreFriends Discount available  LYT members can come for £1!
