RedCape Theatre presents
Be Brave and Leave for the Unknown
On tour across the North East
November 2015

New show about to embark on North East tour looks at the nature of bravery both epic and domestic, large and small.

RedCape Theatre makes exhilarating and exciting shows inspired by true stories of ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Their new show Be Brave and Leave For The Unknown tours the North East in November.

The play explores the concept of bravery through the very personal story of a couple, and the sudden, unexpected course their lives take when tragedy strikes their family.

With a combination of powerful physical theatre, dynamic new writing and stunning soundscape, the award winning RedCape Theatre ask what is required of us when our courage is tested, when just taking the next step feels like the hardest thing to do.
