A co-production by Tantrum Theatre and The Paper Cut Collective.

"If you want the truth, I’m not the person to talk to".

Time moves on but the past still lingers in fragmented memories, fading impressions, and scattered traces. And amidst all of this, somewhere, the truth.

In this brand new verbatim theatre work, be transported on a journey to the past where the facts are elusive and the truth is slippery.

Piecing together authentic recollections and reflections from real people, The Past is a Foreign Country explores the often poignant, sometimes selfish and frequently comic ways we attempt to remember, forget, record, and shape our own histories.

This exciting new work, created by The Paper Cut Collective, an ensemble of Newcastle’s boldest new theatremakers, will grip you in an engaging, personal and playful pursuit to piece together, map out and pin down the ultimate truth.

Cast: Emily Daly, Tamara Gazzard, Callan Purcell, Lucy Shepherd, John Wood.

This play contains infrequent coarse language and adult themes. Recommended for those aged 12 and over.

Duration: approx. 70 minutes no interval
