Test, Track, Trace presented by Next Left

From space we see our planet – green, blue, beautiful. We rush towards the surface, closer and closer until we come to a halt in a northern street. A walking frame with a sticker saying Please Return to Northern General stands abandoned. A kid’s car seat sits beside a random traffic cone. Looking up, a light flashes from a high rise like a signal for help.

And yet.......all along an iron fence, lost objects have been carefully placed – a glove, a child’s sock, a cap, a key ring. In the current climate we are being sorely tested. Our data is being tracked and used to sow division. How do we trace a path towards a caring and united community?

TEST TRACK TRACE invites established and developing northern writers to respond to the world we live in now, to dare to speak out, to be bold, funny, enlightening. Next Left carefully selects the best of that work and brings it to life using a diverse group of local professional actors and directors. Expect a fast-paced, energetic and exciting show as well as a chance to discuss the work.
