Tomorrow I’ll be Twenty

Toured UK schools in autumn 2017

Set in 1970s Pointe Noire, Congo, Tomorrow I’ll be Twenty is ten-year-old Michel’s exuberant eye-witness account of growing up in post-colonialist, communist Africa. Devised by Complicité and the graduating students of Central School of Speech and Drama, the piece uses Complicité’s inimitable approach to ensemble storytelling to bring this captivating comic story to life.

Originally performed at The Pleasance Theatre, London, in autumn 2017, Tomorrow I’ll be Twenty toured schools in West Yorkshire, accompanied by a practical workshop for students of devised theatre.
