If Words Weren't Free

Precious Cargo

Commissioned by South Tyneside Library Services and The Customs House Theatre

Imagine a world where stories are no longer free; if for the last fifty years there had been such a regime, the libraries closed, the books burned, a tax on stories of any kind.

Imagine a world where you didn’t have the right to listen or be heard.


Created in collaboration with The Custom’s House Youth Theatre and a host of library service users and local artists, this promenade performance celebrated the rich history and culture of South Tyneside and the role of Libraries in our society.
