NEW AND ORIGINAL PLACEMAKING EVENTS IN MANSFIELD AND BOSTON
It's the tree in Berry Hill Park that has the scars of being hit by lighting twice. The seat of the car that has taken him far away from where he started. The old Palais De Danse and the new Co-op. These are the haunts of Boston and Mansfield - our stories, cemented brick by brick, woven into the fabric of these two Market Towns.

As the Brexit debacle continues, we invited audiences to experience the stories of the people and places that voted in different ways.

Boston/Mansfield HAUNTS was a partnership project between New Perspectives Theatre Company and the Performing Arts Departments of the Colleges in both places; Boston College in Lincolnshire and Vision West Nottinghamshire College in Mansfield. Participation Director, Jayne Williams worked with two talented groups of students and community storytellers for four weeks to write and perform their three minutes haunts.

Not a Brexit play but an opportunity to bring the places of Boston and Mansfield to life and let these two towns speak for themselves.

Performed live at Create Theatre, Mansfield (28 March 2019) and Sam Newsom Centre, Boston (29 March).
This was a pay what you decide - donations online or on the night can be made in any currency

Running time: approximately 75 minutes

Welcome

New Perspectives is the East Midlands’ touring theatre company. 

Founded in 1973, we champion new writing, under-represented voices and powerful stories, touring world-class theatre into the heart of communities – reaching rural audiences where they live.

We believe that all people, whatever their age, circumstance or identity, have the right to access practice and inspire theatre and that all places can be sites of exciting cultural exchange.
