East Midlands Tour (2 - 7 July 2013)

Everyone is on a journey. It starts with a trickle and ends with a crash. What happens in between is like the intricate path of a river: it flows, it courses, it meanders and it changes its mind. Sometimes a river forks and new journeys...

In Due Course we tell stories inspired by the East Midlands: a region characterised by its inbetween-ness- neither North nor South, moving away from its past but not sure where it is heading.Enter the lives of two people whose future together seemed certain until life threw up some unexpected events. Join the party for someone who feels the only way to find her bright future is to leave the places and people she knows behind.Witness a ruthless corporation where the leaders have decided drastic steps must be taken in the name of progress.And watch from the bank as a mother and daughter prepare for an extraordinary journey down the River Trent.

Due Course is a performance piece created by the STEP UP Creatives Ensemble- a group of twelve aspiring theatre makers from across the East Midlands- from a selection of scripts from the DREAM UP Writing Competition.
