Join the Theatre31 young cast to work with professional artists and be part of Icon’s latest show
The Ballad of St John’s Car Park is a sticky-floored tribute to the positive power of protest and standing up for what we believe in.
With spectacular projection, joyous dance and uplifting community song, The Ballad of St John’s Car Park tells a unifying story about moments in Medway’s history that have been transformed by activism, from the protested closure of Chatham Dockyard in 1984 to the Black Lives Matter movement in 2020.
In Icon’s signature style this brand-new immersive theatre production features a cast of over 100 local performers alongside a professional company, and young people supported by Icon’s Theatre31 programme.
Over the summer, there will be Theatre31 rehearsals throughout August – more dates to be announced. In September, we will rehearse every Wednesday after school, plus two Saturday rehearsals before the Theatre31 cast join the whole company closer to the performances.
