Forest Forge Theatre Company specialises in bringing local stories to life and touring professional theatre to rural communities. As part of our Connections project, we hope to bring community stories to life in partnership with local venues The Lights in Andover, Forest Arts in New Milton, The Spring in Havant as well as the University of Winchester. We are looking to raise £10,000 in order to complete the final year of this three year project. This will go towards creating a buoyant and poetic new play about the heritage waterways of Wessex.

With their iconic chalk streams and gin-clear rivers, the rivers of the community form a powerful current that links the past to the present. UpBeat follows the story of a brother and sister as they chart the ebb and flow of their lives on a journey, from youthful rebellion to adult ideals. A journey that continually pulls them back to the riverbank.

A multi-skilled cast of actor-musicians will use the medium of folk music; vibrant storytelling, of heart-warming, tender and witty riverbank stories that will send audiences dancing home.
