Airwaves – Manchester Youth Theatre

Written by Christina Katic

Directed by Bill Hopkinson

Performed in Space 1, Contact Theatre

This was the world premiere of Airwaves which had been workshopped by the company the previous year. It concentrated on families in Manchester and the Balkans at the start of the ’90s as former friends become feuding neighbours and bitter enemies as they are forced to take sides.

I created a vast open set as much of the action happened simultaneously or with quick cuts between different families, countries, timelines and realities.
