Protest is a new play from Hannah Lavery coming to Northern Stage, Barras Bridge, Newcastle upon Tyne.

It follows the lives of three young girls as they learn to use their voices and take a stand against injustices in their community. Aimed at young people aged 8 and up, and their grown-ups, the play is an introduction to activism for all.

Running is Alice’s happy place, but she is struggling to prove her worth. Jade is slowly coming to realise prejudices can be found everywhere. Chloe is determined to make a change, starting with the town.

Protest runs from April 27–May 6 at Northern Stage before embarking on a Scottish tour, including dates at Edinburgh International Children’s Festival.
