‘Mad Max for kids’ in Playlovers’ The Trolleys
FLOREAT-based theatre company Playlovers will present a play described as Mad Max for kids.
The Trolleys, directed by Wembley Downs resident Andie Holborn, is about a dangerous world where light in jars is the most important commodity.
For a group of unlucky children, known as the Trolleys, their jars of light are fading and they don’t know why.
Holborn said the play’s message, despite being dystopian, was hopeful, positive and humorous.
“The Trolleys examines the duty of care each generation has towards the other,” he said.
“The older generation is responsible for gifting young people a healthy world in which they can live fruitfully and without fear.
“The younger generation, as custodians of this gift, need to be resilient and keep hope alive; to do better than the previous generation in the way they care for the world and their loved ones.”
The Trolleys plays at 8 Draper Street, Floreat, 8pm, May 20-21, 26-28 and 2pm, May 22, 29. Email firstname.lastname@example.org.
