The acclaimed verbatim theatre show, The Caravan, by Look Left, Look Right will be running at the Warwick Arts Centre during the conference, All Together Now: British Theatre after Multiculturalism.
In Summer 2007 severe flooding across the UK brought misery to thousands of people, destroying homes and livelihoods. As a result of the ensuing chaos, over 2000 households were still living in caravans a year after the event, with over 100 families still stuck in caravans two Christmases later.
Following months of research and interviews, Look Left Look Right present the stories of real people word for word, alongside visual and audio footage, inside their very own caravan outside Warwick Arts Centre!
With fascinating memories of what happened and moving accounts from the people who were worst affected, The Caravan is a timeless piece of theatre that explores the resilience of human nature. Following a Fringe First Award, wide critical acclaim and sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival and The Royal Court Theatre in London this is your chance to experience a documentary up close – in a caravan.
