Takeover International 2017

14/48 Takeover International saw 20 young people in Leicester, Wolverhampton and Seattle write 4 plays on the theme of ‘Mistaken Identity’.

These plays were then produced by theatre-makers in all three cities in just 10 hours, and staged at 6pm on Monday 29th May. That’s right, young people wrote a play, and then the very next day, it was staged in three cities, across the world. Pretty impressive huh?

We’re proud to present video footage of all 4 plays, staged in all 3 cities. Directors and actors had no idea how the plays were being staged elsewhere, so, for the first time, we all get to see these plays in all of their international glory.
