The nooks and crannies of life can be bewildering. When We Embraced travels across England to embrace the little things in life that are not so easy to explain.

When We Embracedleaps off the stage into the audience in search of something more real and more spontaneous. It is about acknowledging the intricacies and complexity of being human and embracing the best and worst bits in equal measure.
The actor led show, which has been produced by Stockton’s ARC, uncovers and explores our innermost thoughts and extracts them to the surface through a mix of humour, playfulness and thought-provoking dialogue.
