This is a show about belonging. About tribes and families. About the place you belong because you were born there; the places that are in your blood but also the places you adopt; that you pretend are your home and the places you change yourself to try and belong in.
It’s about class mobility. And regional identity. And being a Thatcher’s child. It’s about education and 'making good’ for yourself. And maybe about how that can leave you exiled from the place you started. With nowhere to quite belong.
It’s about always being an imposter and trying to remember how to speak in your own voice.
Arch 468 presents a Theatre in the Mill commission. Written & performed by Rebecca Atkinson-Lord.
A wondrous, tricky show about class, identity and accents
I had a profound theatrical experience at The Class Project tonight. Recognition, the voice of my family, permission, aspiration, connection, rootlessness, politics, pragmatism, compromise, pride. And laughing. And crying. So I'd recommend it! Bostin!
A thoughtful piece of brilliance
Though-provoking autobiographical exploration of the relationship between accent and class ★★★★
