"We need to use our imagination. We need to imagine that change might be possible. That change is possible, however hard or impossible it might seem.”

In a blend of languages, including fully integrated BSL, three performers tell a story from three perspectives. It is the story of an international meeting. A meeting called to respond to a crisis. A meeting at which something happened, and in that moment everything changed.

Exploring equality and inviting action, SUMMIT is the new play by renowned theatre-maker Andy Smith, writer-performer of The Preston Bill, Commonwealth, and (alongside Tim Crouch), What Happens to the Hope at the End of the Evening.

“Smith’s optimism is infectious” Total Theatre Magazine

SUMMIT is performed in English and BSL, and is accessible for both Deaf and hearing audiences.

Co-commissioned by South Street in association with University of Reading, Brighton Festival, Lincoln Performing Arts Centre, UCLan/Derelict and Lancaster Arts. Supported by University of Manchester, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Unity Theatre, Liverpool and the Peggy Ramsey Foundation. Funded by Arts Council England.
