Global food security is facing crisis conditions as climate change, population growth and diminishing resources contribute to catastrophic outcomes.
World Premiere. We are working with internationally renowned playwright Simon Stephens who will collaborate with four emerging playwrights - Miriam Battye, Brad Birch, Alistair McDowall and Kellie Smith to explore the commodification of our food. Their research will result in a series of dialogues, interventions and performance pieces to be staged at the Royal Exchange Theatre. This is a sharing of their progress so far, and you are invited to come and help them develop their ideas.
