Production detailsCrawling in the Dark
is the seventh play that the Almeida Theatre has commissioned for young people, supporting study across the curriculum, particularly within Citizenship, Drama and English. The production will give students a creative opportunity to engage with the issues of personal responsibility and explore the effect of drug abuse in both families and in the wider community. Crawling in the Dark
follows two young people at crucial points of change in their lives, academically and personally, and explores the issue of personal responsibility. The play has been developed with groups of local students from Elizabeth Garrett Anderson Language College, Mount Carmel Technology College for Girls and the Young Friends of the Almeida Theatre, who worked closely with playwright Natalie Mitchell to explore key themes in The Knot of the Heart and identify the issues that most affected their lives as young Londoners growing up in 21st Century Islington.
