All the Queen’s Children
An impressive, unflinching piece of fluid theatre
This article is from 2010.
The teens of Reading Youth Theatre devised this unflinching, impressive piece of fluid theatre themselves around the stories of real-life teenage asylum seekers (some of whom are in the company). Samuel is forced to swim to shore, swaggering, glam Lule is pulled into prostitution; their stories are set, pointedly, against that of three gap-year kids blundering around Africa.
