What's The Play About?
‘Blue Balloons Pink’ follows Ash and Maggie on the day of their baby shower. All Ash wants above his career, or even his relationship, is to hold his baby boy in his arms. All Maggie wants is Ash. The promise of a baby on the way should be a dream come true. At least for Ash. For Maggie, this one night could bring her entire world crumbling down. In the course of a single evening relationships are birthed, secrets are conceived and lies can no longer be carried. When the truth is inconvenient people delude themselves and others in order to preserve their desired reality.
What Happens With Your Money?
Your money will go towards our ambitious programme of 'Blue Balloons Pink' at Brighton Fringe in May 2022. It will help pay for our venue hire, fringe registration, production costs, such as set and costume (designed by our fabulous designer Lucy White) and other costs such as marketing and travel as our company members originate from all over the country! Brighton Fringe will be our first tour destination with 'Blue Balloons Pink' and will hopefully be a springboard for the play as it then travels to Camden and Edinburgh Fringe!
Who Are We?
We are Juvenile Behaviour Theatre Company; young theatre enthusiasts with a passion for creating and sharing stories. We have a number of key aims, the first being that we aim to push the boundaries of the actor and audience relationship. We are dedicated to showcasing new work, helping new writers in the industry develop their voice. We are also dedicated to young creatives, after all this is a company formed by young people for young people and we want to provide as many opportunities for people new to the industry as possible. Our final aim is that our work remains playful and free, driven by process rather than result.
Our artistic directors, Patrick Gregan and Daisy Roe, met whilst training with the National Youth Theatre and have been creators ever since. The company was formed in lockdown but this proved no obstacle for our determined team! Daisy spent lockdown directing, writing and producing the screen series Dropping Marmalade whilst Patrick utilised his time offering acting lessons to fellow colleagues and hosting a play reading group once a week.
