Half Moon Theatre the UK’s leading small-scale theatre company making work for young people returns to Pegasus this Autumn following their last visit with the company’s 2017 award-winning co-production What Once Was Ours (Off West End OFFIE Award for Best Production for Young People aged 13+).
Developed in partnership with young people, Off the Grid is an immersive new play by David Lane that navigates a shocking and heart breaking human story through the underbelly of a hidden society.
“I trade in my teenage years for you
To protect you
Create what I never had
So you’ll see how beautiful the world can be”
Connor and Kelly are brother and sister. They share the same birthday, but ten years apart. Since the disappearance of their parents, when Kelly was three, they have been dependent on each other for survival. Connor is everything to Kelly: dad, brother, mum, friend – and storyteller. They’ve learned how important it is to believe in something fantastic when you’re living off the grid. But what happens when you discover you’ve made the wrong decision? Forced to back down, do you sacrifice your beliefs in order to stay together?
Follow Connor and Kelly over seven years and discover if their own tale is as hopeful as the fiction they’ve clung on to for their very existence.
