This Summer ‘Waterford Youth Arts’ and ‘Garter Lane Arts Centre’ will be bringing you the first Youth Theatre show to happen in Ireland since the start of the pandemic – “Stolen Time”.
“See what happens when Imogen wanders into the woods where nobody goes because many years ago a child had a tragic accident there. What is it about these woods that makes them so strange and eerie and what is that sound that she follows? Will Imogen ever emerge again and does she even know what’s real or imaginary anymore….”
Stolen Time is a MAGICAL new play by the brilliant Waterford playwright Martina Collender who brought you ‘One Hundred Thousand Breaths’ (2016) and ‘If The Lights Change’ (2017). She will be joined once again by director Liam Meagher and together they aim to create a super hat-trick of productions.
….. Come away human child for the world’s more full of weeping then you can understand…..Imogen has spent 17 years of her time, she SHOULD be laughing away her last summer before College, she SHOULD be waiting on her Leaving Cert Results, she SHOULD be getting ready for her Debs but she’s not. She’s not doing much of anything, she’s not able to do much of anything at all these days because Imogen’s time is being stolen from her. She’s already lost months of her life and can’t bear the thought of watching the rest of her time slip away. Imogen doesn’t belong in this world anymore. She doesn’t know how to belong in our world. Join Imogen as she steps out of herself and into a world full of magic that is her last hope to find redemption.
