If Brighton was a dining table that stretched out along the sea…
Who sits at the table?
What’s on the menu?
And what stories are told across the table?
Brighton People’s Theatre wants to meet you, to create a new story for the stage. The story is called Born and Bread: it’s about home, belonging, and identity, and we want to meet people from all different backgrounds to bring it to life.
Whether you were born in Brighton or have just arrived, we want to meet you.
Born and Bread will be performed at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts (ACCA) in July 2022. There are lots of ways to be involved.
