Programme Note #1: Multiplex

MB wrote “During my time directing for Young Wick, I have been astonished by the talent and dedication the group have shown in every production – and this year is no different. They really have been a delight to direct and teach. As well as performing on stage, the group have put tremendous enthusiasm into all aspects of the production, publicity, props, costumes, sound and lighting. The year’s show really has been a group effort. With at least three members busily working back stage and the rest of the cast giving it their all, this really is an ensemble piece!

Multiplex is a play that looks at the magical job of the humble usher. As we follow Dillon, one of the senior ushers, we explore the individual quirks of the characters and their status in their work life. Their hopes, dreams, fears and aspirations are all united through their love of film.

As you sit back with your popcorn and … ‘Ask yourself one question: what’s your favourite film, punk?'”
