Include Youth Presents – Keep ‘Er Lit a new musical written by David Oliver and Cat McGinty.
Following a sell-out run in The Alley theatre and The Balor Theatre the cast and crew are back with a one-off unique performance in The Mac Theatre Belfast.
Include Youth have commissioned this work that has been advised by young people and staff in their organisation on the work they do and the impact that intervention strategies have on young people.
The show follows the lives of Callan, Jodie, Katie and Mat – 4 young people who for one reason or another are having difficulties in their lives. They do share one thing in common though, their love and passion for music. Set just after the signing of the Good Friday Agreement, the young people have just finished a year on a music based programme with their mentors Fauna and Dylan. As an end goal they have been invited to play at the Keep ‘Er Lit festival in Donegal.
Keep ‘Er Lit is an educational show for young people looking at very important issues in today’s society including peace building, community relations, mental health, addiction, relationships, issues for young carers, family breakdown, isolation, stigma and peer pressure.
