Mothertongue Tales

Follow three young travellers fleeing persecution as they journey across the globe collecting stories of selfish tortoises, singing mermaids, generous goats and hungry woodcutters.  This debut production involves 5 local schools working with 5 professional directors in a combined cast of over 100 young performers.

Following their award-nominated Mothertongue Tales community story sharing project, Royal & Derngate’s Arts Leaders aged 13-24 years, with support from Northamptonshire Community Foundation and Sir Thomas White Charity, have commissioned writer Antonia Underwood to adapt their storybook into a play that celebrates the culturally diverse communities within Northampton.
