Astronauts Tickets selling fast

Tickets for Astronauts are selling very fast, with both Thursday and Friday night's shows nearly sold out.

Our new play, by the multi award-winning playwright Alice Birch, whose play Revolt. She Said. Revolt Again opens at the RSC this weekend, is a provocative exploration of the housing crisis.  It has been created in collaboration with 20 16-19 year old ICT members.

This show will sell out - please book your tickets now.


The end of the Oracle

Our two Oracle Projects come to an end this week, with sharings to friends, parents and teachers on Tuesday and Wednesday.

The Oracle Project began in 2009 and is an annual project working with more than 60 young people from more than 10 local primary schools and two key partner secondary schools - Islington Arts and Media School and Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Language College for Girls.  

The two projects, both led by ICT associate director Emma Higham, have been exploring the idea of a giant egg that crash lands in a school playground - who is in it, and why won't they come out? 

Over the course of 20 weeks the participants have been learning key theatre, team-work and communication skills and - crucially - have become used to regularly attending a secondary school for the first time.

We'll be posting pictures from both sharings here soon.


Self assembly


Corey and Ilana, two of our Young Associates, showcased their final projects yesterday evening at Platform.  The two were joined by Jen Fidai, another YA, who had completed her workshop based project earlier in the week.

Ilana's piece My First Vote explored her relationship with politics on the eve of the first time she could vote.  Corey's piece, Hold His Heart, looked at the meaning of bravery and self.

Both scratch plays were warmly received by an audience of more than 50 friends, industry colleagues and ICT members.
