It’s a warm Summer's day in the local graveyard.
Recently arrived in the North of England, Sheila wants a new man, a new job and a new life. Instead, she has found Joanne, a young mother with a passion for local history.
Jake and Hasan are childhood friends. They have been to the same schools, played on the same football teams, chased the same girls and dreamed the same dreams.
The balmy weather has brought them all outside. Jake and Hasan are skipping school and shooting the breeze while Sheila and Joanne are tracing a shared history among the headstones.
The trees are in leaf and the wildflowers bloom, while in the distance a light aircraft draws ever closer through the clouds. Unknown to all of them, terror is lurking in the sky.
Join storyteller Matthew Bellwood for a new show about society, friendship and the things we hold dear about the places where we live. Thoughtful, intriguing and filled with warmth and humour, Terror From The Skies asks important questions about how much those in power know, or care, about our communities.
This show has been created through months of research and conversation with people of all ages from across the North of England.
Terror From The Skies has been awarded Bridging The Gap On Tour 2019, and is supported by Leeds Library Service, Leeds Inspired, Interplay Theatre and Arts Council England.
