Camp Albion - Watermill Play on Tour!

The renowned Watermill Theatre’s brand-new touring production of Camp Albion by Newbury-born playwright Danielle Pearson comes to Aldworth Village Hall on Thursday 23 June at 19:00 for an unmissable outdoor performance.

This new production explores the building of the 1996 Newbury Bypass and the activism and environmental debate that accompanied it.  Told through the eyes of Cassie, a university student, the play investigates both sides of the argument as she and her mother find themselves on opposing sides. In a time before smartphones, Twitter, Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion, the ‘Third Battle of Newbury’ was one of the definitive environmental campaigns of the 1990s.

Camp Albion has been written by The Watermill’s playwright in residence Danielle Pearson. Danielle’s recent works include A Mini Summer Night's Dream (Watermill Theatre); D Day 75 (101 Greenham Arts) and Tabitha’s Ballad (South Street Arts Centre, Reading).
