‘People seemed to know where they were going. I was the one still lost. But I’m learning, all the time I’m learning.’
The Air Around Us is a tale of overcoming adversity and of the universal need to belong.
Inspired by one man’s life, this wry, moving show paints a vivid picture of Battersea. It sheds light on a generation of Londoners whose stories are in danger of becoming lost amid regeneration.
Using verbatim material from their Battersea Stories outreach, the show is part of Lightbox Theatre’s commitment to discovering untold stories.
Lightbox Theatre is a Battersea-based professional theatre company dedicated to telling overlooked and untold stories.
From the revival of forgotten plays to the discovery of new voices, Lightbox creates work that is illuminating, uplifting and resonant with our world today.
Praise for Lightbox Theatre’s production of Sam Thompson’s Over The Bridge:
“What the West End needs is a small theatre to which fringe productions of this calibre can transfer.” British Theatre Guide
