Part of the Camden Fringe Festival
Written by Amy Tickner
The New World is a new start, not the same start – at least that’s what The System has promised. Aleece, Si, and The People are selected to travel to the New World. It’s their chance at a completely new start, 55 million kilometres away from the mess we’ve made here. But as tensions run high and Aleece and Si realise just how different everyone in the New World is we begin to see how possible a do-over really is. A politically driven, ensemble-based piece that brings its audiences deep into the New World.
Jammy Dodgers, written and directed by Amy Tickner, was first developed with Flengwin Theatre in October 2018 as part of their Out of The Shadows new writing festival at Theatre N16. It was then performed at Etcetera Theatre in January 2019, and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, August 2019. Since then the play has been redeveloped alongisde A&B Company for this year’s Camden Fringe.
