“Is it selfish?
To want to be something extraordinary...”
This Spring, using an eclectic mix of live music and projection, Poleroid Theatre bring you Ashleigh Packham’s quirky, well-crafted and incredibly intimate debut play, exposing a darkly comic and relevant political and social story dealing with attitudes towards young people and their effects.
Anna vs. The World.
With her collection of Peanuts.
"...I find ones in the shape of things"
This is the story of a girl who wants to be everyone and everything.
But she isn't.
So what does she do now?
Peanuts is a beautifully vibrant and tender insight into how a young girl deals with the pressure placed on today’s youth and the loneliness of modern society.
Poleroid’s cast includes Actress REBECCA TANWEN (Mr Selfridge, ITV; The Fear, Channel 4), and Musicians LUCY BISHOP and CHRIS YARNELL.
Jamie Garven, senior Acting tutor at Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama recently said “Ashleighs expression of delicate feelings and awaresness of despair is what gives her witty, funny, intelligent writing a wonderful sense of maturity.”
