In January 2017, TYP commissioned a young writer to create a play in collaboration with a young Rep company of 12 in response to a unanimous sense of youth voicelessness following the EU referendum in 2016.  

'Not Our Turn' told the story of a community that had been forced underground. The surface was no longer inhabitable, and the earth was running on borrowed time. When the power supply to this new home got cut off, a young group of friends, desperate to save their community, attempt to turn it back on. They are forced to confront their environment, their inheritance, and each other, and all the while time is running out…

POSTER BY HARRY BOWLEY

The production began it's journey at the XCentre in our home city before touring to London in July. The company then returned to the Northcott Theatre as part of a celebratory platform for high quality youth work in the city.
