Big Brum Youth Theatre presents

Revelation by Chris Cooper

Fri 1st & Sat 2nd June 2007 at 7pm in Ron Barber Studio Theatre

A girl packs her bag for a school trip. A boy revives a stricken shepherd on a frozen hilltop. For him survival has to come first. For her it’s no longer enough.

Separated by centuries but drawn together by age old problems, their lives, and the past and present, become inseparably entwined on a journey into their futures.

Revelation is a new play by Chris Cooper written for Big Brum Youth Theatre. It is a story about the struggle to be free in dark and dangerous times.
