Lookout is a small encounter full of big ideas. Created with primary school children from Broad Oak Community Primary School in St Helens, this performance attempts to consider some difficult questions in a simple way. Half an hour out of your day that might change the way you look at your town forever.

Lookout takes place as a meeting between one adult audience member and one child performer. Two people of very different ages, coming together to have a conversation. They stand together somewhere high up, looking out at the streets and buildings of the town below, and begin to talk about its future. They see before them the world as it is now and as it might be many years from now.

Attendees of Lookout are also invited to the Lookout Gathering on Wednesday 25th May. Scroll down or click here to read more about it.
