Explore the Metaverse with a new show from the members of Liverpool’s Young Everyman Playhouse (YEP).
The award-winning youth programme is 10 this year and its actors are back at the Playhouse in March (March 9-12) with new show Tap Tap, which explores a world dominated by smart tech, blogs, instant messaging and video sharing, apps, social media, fake news, filters, snaps, raps and taps.
YEP has always been about giving young people a voice, and their own devised work has included tackling tough subjects – including politics, war, the environment and corporate greed. It’s always about things that matter to them.
Associate director Chris Tomlinson said: “Tap Tap isn't all doom and gloom. It’s something a little bit hopeful, a little bit optimistic. But it’s the real, hard-hitting reality of the world that we think we’re going to be living in for decades to come.”
The show also features YEP’s trademark movement and chorus work, created from members' research, exploration and ideas.
Since its launch in 2012 Young Everyman Playhouse has provided opportunities for young people aged 14-25 from all backgrounds. Across six strands – acting, writing, directing, producing, technical and marketing - YEP encourages members to see theatre in a new light.
