Ashton Theatre Group: The Unpacking

  • Settle Victoria Hall 24 Kirkgate Settle, England, BD24 9DZ United Kingdom (map)

The Ashton Theatre Group presents a play from young Cumbrian writer, Imogen Berry-Henshaw. Imogen is from Woodlands, a remote community in South Lakeland, and this is her first professional commission. She performed in  two previous AAC productions; Dominic and Hollows. Now she returns to the Company as a Writer having just graduated this year from Salford University with a B.A. Hons in Drama and Creative Writing

How far would you go to stand by a friend? Lie for them? Cheat for them? Go to prison for them?

Can you be sure they would do the same for you . . . of course they would. Wouldn’t they?

In a locked side room in a foreign airport are three young people . . . University students who flat-share in Manchester. An ‘item of interest’ has been found in their one, shared suitcase.

They have no idea what the item is. Enter their holiday rep, Olivia, to sort things out. But nothing and no one is quite what they seem.

The Unpacking is a tension filled hour of manipulation, control, backstabbing, deceit, treachery and game playing . . . the unpacking of friendship.
