No Stone Unturned

Devised by Masque Youth Theatre; dramatised by Euan Kitson; directed by Ursula Wright

The central character in No Stone Unturned is the Church of the Holy Sepulchre itself, standing at the heart of what became Northampton for a thousand years. Its stones contain as many stories – the lives of its master builders and monumental masons, priests and parishioners, visitors and vagrants, who have left their mark in every possible way. In this production, the church becomes a refuge for a diverse group of people escaping a sudden, unexplained event that is threatening the town. As they wait for release, or perhaps even death, new roles and relationships are developed and the age-old craft of story-telling finds unexpected forms. Questions are raised about the meaning and value of heritage, and about the attention that should be paid to the present.
