u-decide, china plate



China Plate is an independent theatre studio that works with artists, venues, festivals and funders to make original, exciting theatre that plays with form and has narrative at its heart.

They are passionate about creating adventurous and imaginative new work with popular appeal. Using theatre to engage and inspire, the company takes work into venues, village halls, schools, on to the streets and to festivals in the UK and internationally.

I have written for China Plate's Ballot Box Ballads — part of the U-Decide week of politically-inspired work at Unity Theatre Liverpool during the UK's General Election week 2015.

In Supernatural Violence, quiet poverty haunts the streets: the spectre of austerity, a ghost of slow decay, is creeping doorsills and devouring kitchens while we sleep. A young girl describes the strange disappearances of the poor and dispossessed on the Gideon Estate, whilst ghostly voices from the political elite haunt her every step.
