Christmas may be over and winter has firmly arrived, but there’s still plenty to look forward to at The Mill this month.
THE SHY MANIFESTO stars Theo Ancient who has recently been appearing as Albus Potter in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child in London’s West End.
This is a bittersweet coming-of-age comedy drama about a shy boy who has had enough of constantly being told to ‘come out of his shell’. 17-year-old Callum is proud to be shy and he thinks you all should be too because what this noisy, crazy world really needs right now is some more self-restraint. Callum delivers his manifesto, exploring adolescence, isolation, self-loathing and sexuality, and encourages his audience of radical shy comrades to finally rise up and inherit the earth.
Producers Joe C. Brown and Anthony Hollis said of THE SHY MANIFESTO: “Shyness is one of those paradoxical things – so many people experience it, and yet each sufferer feels uniquely alone. The Shy Manifesto takes this experience as its central subject, something which has rarely been explored in drama, and invites the world to embrace it as a positive personality trait.”
The Shy Manifesto is suitable for ages 12+ and will be at The Mill on Thursday 31st January at 7.30pm. Tickets £15/£13 members. Group discounts available.
We also kick off the New Year with a great selection of movies at The Mill.
