An important hour of theatre that moves, amuses & informs in equal measure – exquisitely written and brilliantly performed.
Section 2 is an important and timely piece of theatre, raising awareness of the far-reaching impact of mental illness, and sectioning in particular. More than that though, it’s a play about friendship and human relationships.
In a week’s time, Paper Creatures Theatre will take to the stage as part of The Bunker’s latest venture: Breaking Out with Peter Imms’ Section 2.
It’s now just under a month to go until the Breaking Out season begins at The Bunker Theatre, so I took the opportunity to chat to Alex Da Silva (Kay) and Esmé Patey-Ford (Rachel) who will be appearing in Paper Creatures’ Section 2.
Section 2 is a new play by London-based playwright Peter Imms which addresses the sensitive subject of mental health. It’s been developed in collaboration with emerging theatre company Paper Creatures.
“You worry (especially with fringe theatre): are you going to put bums on seats? Is it going to be able to portray the message you want? Will the audience get much out of it?”
The Bunker’s Summer 2018 season celebrates exciting work from both emerging and established companies. A highlight of this season is Breaking Out – a new initiative introduced by Artistic Director Joshua McTaggart – which champions the most ambitious and innovative theatre companies who are embarking on their theatrical journey.
