A new play by Hannah Lavery

Directed by Natalie Ibu

“Hope is a superpower. It’s yours and the best thing is, the more you give it away, the more you have.”

The cast of Protest, three young teenage girls, stand in defiance on the set of Protest the stage play, written by Hannah Lavery.

Running is Alice’s happy place – you might even say it’s in her DNA. She’s the best runner at her school but is struggling to prove her worth.

Jade is slowly coming to realise that prejudices can be found everywhere, even in the most surprising places. Realising that her education is ill-equipped to encompass her own history and heritage, and taunted by bullies at school, she knows it’s time to tell her own story.

Meanwhile, litter is piling up in the local forest, and all over the world an environmental crisis is looming. Chloe is determined to make a change, starting with the town.

Three girls prepare to stand up for what they believe in despite the injustices stacked against them in this bold new play from award-winning writer Hannah Lavery exploring what it takes to make a difference, the power of friendship, and the importance of believing in your own voice.

This is a family-friendly show with the recommended age guide of 7+.
