blowin’ in the wind
Protest, upheaval and discord – ultimately
leading to hope, unity and shared optimism.
Chickenshed unveils a brand new songbook musical featuring blues, gospel, folk
and more. With a narrative thread linking protest songs and civil disobedience
from the 1960s to the present day, a mirror is held up to reveal and reflect a
sense of optimism that can prevail even during history’s darkest hours.
Inspired by the historical resonances of two
key events of 1963 – the release of Bob Dylan’s Blowin’ in the Wind, and Martin
Luther King’s ‘I have a dream speech’ in Washington DC -the production takes the
form of an imagined voyage, a magical mystery tour, and ultimately a journey of
hope and freedom. Featuring video projection, stunning set design, poetry, dance
and physical theatre, the piece is a musical celebration of those ordinary
people who have fought for an extraordinary ideal – the right to question how
things are, and to dream of things as they could be.
How many roads must a man walk down
Before you can call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

“I bit into your heart and I chewed on it slowly like a connoisseur. I swallowed
it. I remember thinking it was an especially small heart and easy to digest. But
no matter what I did you wouldn’t die”

It is Day One of the newly formed Truth and Reconciliation Commission for
Northern Ireland at Stormont.
As Sandra Richardson prepares to take her seat on the Commission, her long lost
sister Teeni explodes into the chamber, attacking the South African chairwoman,
Dikeledi Mashiane. Is this part of a terrorist plot or just her sister’s way of
announcing her return to Belfast? Deep in the heart of the Northern Irish
Parliament, overshadowed by the legacy of hurt, Sandra and Teeni must fight
through decades of violence, anger and denial to discover if reconciliation is
possible on the pathway to peace.
Everything Between Us is a searing, taut and fast paced two-woman showdown; a
dramatic, dark, unflinching comedy written by Northern Ireland’s boldest

Based on the novel by Benjamin Zephaniah and adapted for
the stage by Lemin Sissay
Refugee Boy is a powerful and moving story based on Benjamin Zephaniah hugely
acclaimed book. It tells the story of 14 year old Alem, a refugee forced to flee
his family and country for London in the late 1990s, to escape civil war at home
in the disputed region between Ethiopia and Eritrea. As a child of parents from
both regions, Alem is in great danger from the forces of both sides, and is
forced to seek safety alone in the UK.
The story follows Alem’s experiences in London in a warm-hearted tale of hope,
family and identity. For Alem, the challenge is fitting in and growing up in a
country very different from his own, and being there without the family he
Refugee Boy brilliantly continues Chickenshed’s exploration of the issues
surrounding refugees and immigration, as recently examined so powerfully in the
sell-out run of Kindertransport.
“This planet is for everyone, borders are for no one. It’s all about freedom”
Benjamin Zephaniah is a much-loved and celebrated British Jamaican poet, who has
featured in The Times list of Britain's top 50 post-war writers.
