Keep Calm

This play took place in the beautiful location of Cwmoernant farm in Carmarthen.

A group of young people had broken away from society in order to create their own utopian way of life on a farm.  The play took the participant (audience member) on a journey around the farm, where bit by bit the story unfolded through a series of situations/challenges and a darker side to this seemingly peaceful place was discovered with the realization that everyone over the age of 40 had all disappeared!

Produced by Mess Up The Mess and directed by Elise Davison (Taking Flight Theatre Co) this event was one of the most exciting and original youth theatre performances in Wales in the summer of 2012!

The play was a culmination of a series of participatory and interactive workshops run by Mess Up The Mess for young people around Wales through the Act Now! Project funded by the Big Lottery Fund.  The workshops led to a sharing day in April where the groups of young people exchanged ideas and decided on ‘Keep Calm’ as their summer collaborative performance.

The performance took place at Cwmoernant Farm, Carmarthen, SA31 2EU @ 12/3+7pm on Saturday 18th August 2012
