Molly Roberts, Artistic Director of Poleroid Theatre, comments, After a whirlwind development and rehearsal period of this brand new play for Latitude Festival 2016, we are thrilled to be able to work on this gem of a piece again with a team of such energising creatives. We are particularly delighted to have the opportunity to give the show another outing in the dynamic setting that is Vault; both as a space so indicative of the piece itself, and a festival that is truly representative in spirit of the new theatre work Poleroid champions.
Two short ballads about being alive and not… This Must Be The Place is a story about migration, missed connections and life on the edge of respectability. It’s about where we are now and
whether we are really living. It is both frantic and funny, quiet and thoughtful, sometimes bleak, but never without a sense of hope.
This Must Be The Place expertly interweaves these two stories together but co-director Justin Audibert also leaves audiences to make their own connections between the plays and character’s stories – are they intertwined or aren’t they? The stories are brought to life by a talented ensemble of four actors using Poleroid’s trademark theatre combined with live gig.
