back to the future


Producer / Director / Dramaturg

In 2014, Theatre in the Rough and The Atkinson commissioned five short films about the changing experience of childhood and young people's perspectives on ageing.

Working in association with Age Concern Liverpool & Sefton, five writers took part in reminiscence sessions that explored the history of childhood with those who lived it. These were funny, touching, sad, but most of all, inspiring, as people's lives and stories were generously shared.

This resulted in a series of original short films that, as well as being available here, will also be shown in rep on screens around The Atkinson in Southport.

Supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund and The PH Holt Foundation.
