Young Company 11-15 is led by John McCraw, our Creative Learning Director at Pegasus. The company are currently working towards their production of The Chrysalids adapted by David Harrower from the novel by John Wyndham. This is a powerful sci-fi story set in a post-apocalyptic world; a place divided into ‘perfect’ humans and ‘mutants’ on the fringes of society.
In a place of absolute conformity, a group of young people are growing up in fear, hoping that nobody will ever know of their unique powers. Governed by the laws of purity will their differences be accepted, or will they be shunned forever?
Performances Friday 19 July 7:30pm & Saturday 20 July 4:pm & 7:30pm
For ages 10+
About Pegasus Young Companies
Pegasus Young Companies are at the heart of our activity and integral to the creative and artistic process at Pegasus. Each year the Young Companies (11-15s & 16-25s) create their own full production in response to a brief set by our Youth Board. This year the theme is Fired Up, Fearless and Free.
We don’t hold auditions and we welcome anyone with the commitment, enthusiasm and passion to be part of a young theatre company.
Next Intake: 11-15’s September 2019
