Author and journalist Toby Young who is setting up one of the UK’s first Free Schools on the Bush’s doorstep in West London has provided valuable resource material for Steve Waters’ hit play Little Platoons. Now as part of our Schools Season programme of events, we’ve invited Adam Brace (Stovepipe) to work with Toby to create a response to the play.

A response to Little Platoons, directed by our Artistic Director Josie Rourke, will be performed after the evening performances of Little Platoons on 10,11 and 12 of Feb at 10pm.

Tickets are £5 or £3 for ticket holders for performances of Little Platoons on 10,11,12 Feb. This event will start directly after the performance at approximately 10pm.
