Afraid To Ask

Age: 12 A (Parental Guidance)

7 - 8 February 2018




Directed by Tim Bell
Written by James Baldwin
Inspired by the Company. 


Afraid to Ask is a bold, exciting, devised piece of theatre and possibly THE BEST COLLEGE Show in the World ever since it marks the theatrical inauguration of the egg’s new partnership with Bath College.


Maybe you've a question in the back of your head, right now? Maybe it's a question you don't dare to ask, maybe it's a question to which you don't want to hear the answer, maybe you'll just google it because that way maybe you won't have to listen to some hilarious*, insightful*, heart warming*, painfully boring*, eye-watering*, inappropriate*, condescending*, riot-inciting*, FFS-ing* answers. Maybe you'll ask your question as part of the show?


If you ask a young person what is actually happening, breath by breath, and if you actually listen to the answer, you might hear and see something you had not ever known was there.


This is what our intrepid company will be undertaking and if you’re not there to see the theatrical outcome, you might remain forever too afraid to ask.
