  • Play performed in English, Malay and BSL is coming to Preston

    A fully-accessible play performed in English, Malay and British Sign Language is coming to Preston.

    Written by North West born and based Andy Smith, SUMMIT is a three-act play featuring three people performing in the blend of languages, as they try to work together in the face of crisis.

    Smith said: “In both form and content, the play looks to explore ideas of diversity, inclusion and agency, and I am looking forward to presenting it in many places and for many audiences across England this autumn.”

    Exploring ideas of language, rhetoric and how people communicate with each other, SUMMIT tells the story of a meeting organised to discuss and resolve a potentially catastrophic situation.

    Speaking of the play, an audience member said: “If I was going to recommend it to a friend, I would say it’s charming, it’s hopeful, it’s current, and it makes you feel like you want to be a better person.”

    Kate McGrath, director of the play’s producers Fuel, said “Andy has an ability to get right to the essence of things, and in this case to ask, if everything were to change, what would your part in that change be? This is a brand new work that could not be more timely. It’s about crisis, communication, and community, and for me it’s also about finding courage.”

    SUMMIT takes place at DERELICT at UCLan’s Media Factory on Saturday 3 November at 7.30pm.

    The performance is fully accessible to both hearing and non-hearing audiences, and is suitable for ages 14+.

    Tickets are £12 or £9 for concessions, and are available via DERELICT. The show is free to D/deaf audiences and BSL interpreters, who can book by emailing charlotte@derelictlive.org
