A Trestle Community Company performance
2010 marked the St Albans celebration of the Magna Carta and the city’s role as one of the five designated Charter Towns.
To celebrate this event, Trestle Community Company presented a fascinating production based on themes from the Magna Carta. Through a mix of physical theatre, text and stunning ensemble movement, ideas of justice, politics, class and human rights where explored.
Written by acclaimed playwright Anna Reynolds, Twelve Fifteen was devised and performed by a large cast of all ages. This very funny and often moving, modern day epic guided the audience through a vibrant landscape of unruly teenagers, pompous dog-walkers, a heroic Police Community Support Officer and a Greek chorus of high-viz-jacketed townspeople. As the story reached its climax in court, the audience turned jury, and one girl’s future was changed forever.
