On Sat 27th June, Broadway Young and Talented presented a sold-out performance of Within the Windrush Dream, a magical adventure where a young girl, desperate to escape bullying taunts, disappears into a picture frame. Once inside she experiences the life of a time gone by, when the Empire Windrush was leaving the warm coast of the Caribbean bound for the shores of England.

We were pleased to have produced Within The Windrush Dream in collaboration with Pilot Theatre, who developed an online strategy and digital resources. Pilot Theatre are a National Portfolio Organisation specialising in work for, by and with young people.
