By September 27, 2016

Theatre & Dance. Bradford.

northcountry-webFreedom Studios is presenting North Country by Bradford playwright Tajinder Singh Hayer, a new piece of work exploring the lives of three young people from Bradford as they deal with the aftermath of a devastating plague. Over the next forty years, they reshape themselves and their communities as the play asks ‘What do you hold onto when your whole world has changed?’

Tajinder Singh Hayer’s post-apocalyptic new play will run at The Wild Woods in the centre of Bradford from 26 October – 5 November.

Directed by Freedom Studio’s new co-artistic director Alex Chisholm (Nine Lives by award winning writer, Zodwa Nyoni), North Country tells the story of the survival of three Bradford teenagers – Harvinder, Nusrat and Jason – after a plague has hit the planet. Together and separately they struggle to survive, each bringing together their people and their communities as they try to remake their world. But their biggest challenge doesn’t come from starvation, or zombie like cannibals. It comes from within.

Bradford born Tajinder Singh Hayer has written for the stage, radio and screen. He has been writer on attachment at the West Yorkshire Playhouse, writer in residence at BBC Radio Drama Manchester, and was nominated as one of the Royal Court’s fifty promising playwrights in 2006-7.

The production is supported by the Arts Council of England, Bradford Metropolitan District Council and Lancaster University.
