Wake Up People

Wake Up People

by John Webber


John Webber’s Wake Up People, commissioned by the Queen’s Theatre, is a funny and ultimately heart-breaking look at how obsessions can tear apart a family already under pressure. Using stories from interviews, attending events and watching far too many YouTube videos, John’s play, set in Thurrock, will be presented by actors as a script-in-hand performance with video and sound projections to thrillingly show how the internet is enabling a new pandemic – conspiracy theories – to sweep through local communities.

A work in progress presentation, you will be invited to give feedback so you can help create the future full production.
