Everything Has Changed

20 - 21 August, 2021


A joyful, kaleidoscopic new show for 7-11 year-olds about change, why change happens – and how to deal with it.

The world has ever so slightly shifted. Things are... different, skewed, off kilter and no one else has noticed. Time feels strange and no one day is the same. Wait. Was that an actual zebra crossing the zebra crossing?

Join us for this fast-moving and musical adventure about the chaos of the last year – allowing young people to take stock and share hopes for the future. Created by award-winning theatre company Rhum + Clay, made in consultation with a child psychologist and children across London.

Everything Has Changed is also touring local school and community venues over summer 2021.

For shows at the New Diorama on 20 & 21 Aug, the £5 ticket price includes picnic-style refreshments for audiences to enjoy after the show in New Diorama’s newly refurbished café (vegetarian, vegan, and gluten free options available). Please note, each audience member, including young people, needs their own ticket.
