The production will provide opportunities for participants to be involved in all aspects of the theatre process including acting, lighting, sound, marketing/PR and the overall creation of the show. Our 2024 project is inspired by William Shakespeare’s Tempest, the global climate crisis and the 300th anniversary of the father of civil engineering, Leeds born John Smeaton.
