We're seeking backers to support our first full production as a theatre company at VAULT Festival 2019. View From Here Theatre amplifies voices underrepresented in UK theatre and shares untold stories from across the country in response to current issues. We're proud to be partnering with Alice Malseed to bring her brilliant play Jade City from a boxing club in Belfast to one of the biggest arts festivals in London.

A punchy and hot-headed show exploring the dark, toxic and tumultuous friendship of two lads in east Belfast.

Jade City uses rich language and powerful theatrical imagery to explore male friendship and toxic masculinity. The play talks sensitively about a brutally damaging event in their lives, and explores aspects of masculinity and mental health which affect many communities across Belfast, the UK and Ireland. Against these big topics, and as a way to escape the mundanity and trauma of their lives, the men have created a game. It is playful, childish, and allows them to explore their own lives and truths, to a devastating effect.

06 — 10 February 2019, 9pm (4.30pm matinee on Sun 10 Feb)
The Cavern @ The Vaults, Leake Street, London

The play has been developed with support from Department of Foreign Affairs (Ireland), Jerwood Charitable Foundation and EastSide Arts Belfast.
