What People Think is a witty and revealing original production by the Carriageworks Young Theatre Makers (CYTM) at the Carriageworks on Sat 29 July.
A team of researchers have come up with a hypothesis: people who feel embarrassment less keenly are more successful in life. They set out to prove their hypothesis through presenting the contrasting experiences of siblings; one who feels embarrassment easily and one who is never embarrassed. Created a talented ensemble of young theatre makers What People Think is a light-hearted original show touching on themes of social awkwardness, growing up and success in a post-truth world.
Led by professional theatre director, Ruth Cooper, the group is formed of young people aged between 10 and 19 who meet weekly to create new and original theatre. CYTM develops young people’s confidence and skills as performers, writers and directors.
