Immersive theatre play Lessons (Un)Learned invites you back to your “rebellious” school days

New­ly formed the­atre com­pa­ny Trunks & Trin­kets is pre­sent­ing pre­views of a new play about the UK edu­ca­tion sys­tem and how we com­ply and rebel against it through­out our school years.

Titled Lessons (Un)Learned, the play is an immer­sive the­atre pro­duc­tion, which means there will be audi­ence involve­ment. The com­pa­ny promis­es delights such as a giant ball pit, tra­di­tion­al Tudor danc­ing, danc­ing din­ner ladies, sci­en­tif­ic cock­tail mak­ing, and a school disco.

Trunks & Trin­kets have been devel­op­ing the play at City of West­min­ster Col­lege, and said “the excit­ing archi­tec­ture of CWC has heav­i­ly informed our work from con­cep­tion all the way to production”.

As the pro­duc­tion is still work-in-progress, the com­pa­ny has stressed the aim of its pre­views is to “gain invalu­able feed­back from spec­ta­tors and also to invite investors who can help bring our the­atre piece to a larg­er pub­lic audience”.

They advise wear­ing com­fort­able cloth­ing and footwear. A cloak­room is avail­able and the space is ful­ly acces­si­ble. Those with extra access require­ments should let the com­pa­ny know.

Pre­view shows are tak­ing on Sat­ur­day, August 5, and Sun­day, August 6, from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Sarah Sid­dons The­atre, City of West­min­ster Col­lege, Lon­don, W2 1NB. The near­est Tube sta­tion is Edg­ware Road.

Audi­ence mem­bers must reg­is­ter before­hand via the Lessons (Un)Learned’s sign-up page here, and a min­i­mum £5.00 dona­tion is required.
