We are producing Ashes to express the struggle that many people face when trying to conceive a child. Through this production we hope to encourage constructive conversations about the difficulties people face, the challenging circumstances that many find themselves in and to explore the bigger questions surrounding fertility treatment.
At the Octagon, we are always striving to push the boundaries of theatre and to hear from perspectives that we don't often hear from. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Tom Robinson is at the centre of the story but we never truly see things from his point of view. That's why we commissioned three writers to write one full scene each, telling the story through Tom's eyes.
