Watch our final Theatresight video for A Thousand Seasons Past
The ghost ship carrying stories of young people from Bristol’s Past has left its dock at Wapping Wharf and sailed back into the mist...
A Thousand Seasons Past had its last performance, and with it ended the fantastic project undertaken by the cast and crew of young people and professional theatre makers. Over this journey the young people involved in this project have explored the archives, records and the history of their hometown. From there the rehearsal period began and the research put to good use as through devising and theatre the stories began to come alive. Congratulations to all involved in this moving, haunting and incredibly interesting project.
So here is the final Theatresight video - See how the cast and crew got ready for the live performances, moving from rehearsal room to the open air set. Watch them battle with seagulls, noisy boats and cake crumbs…

Here are some thoughts from Travelling Light Youth Theatre cast members before opening night:
“We have listened to one another and it hasn’t been just one person’s idea, it has been all our ideas to make the show a fantastic time-travelling experience.” Jasmine
“I’m used to working with younger people, but it has been fun working with older people and hearing their ideas.” Indy
“I’ve loved learning the three main stories of the show and seeing the actors play them out.” Dot
“When you’re performing you can see the gatehouse of the new gaol, and I find myself looking at that when we’re closing John Horwood’s story and thinking ‘that actually happened right there’ – it’s slightly weird.” Flo
