Award-winning theatre company Bite Size Plays will be taking on the Brighton Fringe again this summer with Down the Toilet - a sustainability mission with a difference! Aimed at young audiences, Down the Toilet invites them on a secret mission to some smelly sewers - armed only with a bag. The audience then has to decide what to bin and what not to. Arrive early enough (15 minutes beforehand), and the first clue you solve given to you by Agent P will lead you to a free hot chocolate!
The rest of the clues are hidden in the Bite-Sized Plays, where secret agents go back in time to meet Mr and Mrs Thomas Crapper, discover the terrible story of Poosey, and be part of the jury in a court case where they get to decide what happens. Producer Sophia George said, “ We pride ourselves on delivering five star shows that adults enjoy as much as young audiences. The short form plays we produce are a perfect introduction to theatre for young people, and we're thrilled to be working with writer Lucy Kaufman on this project.”
The fully interactive piece, sponsored by Southern Water, encourages its audiences to make sustainable changes to their lifestyles - and part of the ticket price goes to WaterAid - an international charity that improves access to safe water, hygiene and sanitation.
If you know someone brave, smart and imaginative enough to become a secret agent (they mustn't be afraid to change things they think are bad, good at working out what to do and able to think up ways to solve tricky problems.), then Down the Toilet secret missions take place at 10.15 and 11.25 on Saturdays the 10th, 17th, 24th and 31 st May Theatre Royal, Brighton - prices are £7 for under 16s and £9 for 16 and older, including a free hot chocolate or coffee.
Bite Size Plays is no stranger to the Brighton Fringe, having previously won a BBC Pick of the Brighton Festival & Fringe Award, as well as a Festival Angel prize, plus a Fringe Review ‘Outstanding Theatre’ Award, and a Fringe Guru Editor’s Award for its co-production Here Comes the Bride with Beside the Seaside.
