Running On The Cracks: Pilot Theatre Company
Run. Keep running. You're doing the right thing. Lay low. Head down.
Don't look back. Just keep running. And whatever you do, don't tread on the cracks.
Leonora Watts-Chan's world has been turned upside down. Her parents are gone and her bird-loving uncle is getting too close for comfort. She is only sure of one thing, she must get out. In a desperate bid to find the Grandparents she never knew, Leo jumps on a train to Glasgow, penniless and stealing food to survive. A nationwide hunt for her begins. Will she track down her grandparents, or will her uncle get to her first?
Adapted for the stage from the novel by the Internationally acclaimed writer Julia Donaldson (The Gruffalo), the Tron Theatre and Pilot Theatre are proud to present this new, fast moving play about runaways, identity, survival and how friendships can develop in the strangest situations.
Pilot Theatre is the award winning International Touring Theatre Company based at York Theatre Royal.
The company was formed in 1981 by a group of students from Bretton Hall College, but in 1994 underwent a structural change and it was then that the current Artistic Director, Marcus Romer took the post. From this moment the company focused on developing a national touring circuit, creating exciting and innovative work for young people
They offer a strong support network of educational resources, workshops and interactive opportunities.
