Two people meet. The rest is infinite.

She’s moving to Birmingham and he’s from London. They end up at the same party. We think we know how this story ends. But what happens next in this story will be shaped by the choices they make in each moment. 

As their growing friendship is steered by the changing beat of the drum, they’ll wrestle with which version of themselves they choose to be and the possible futures they could share. 

Fusing dance, music and dialogue to explore the complex beauty of human relationships, I Wonder If… is a dazzling new play directed by Daniel Bailey (Red Pitch) and devised by the Company

YV Unpacked was established in 2018 by Kwame Kwei-Armah, developed with the intention of reaching audiences who may find it more difficult to access theatre by taking professional work to them. Following the success of three YV Unpacked tours – Spring Awakening, She Ventures, He Wins and Love Reign which were performed in community venues across Lambeth and Southwark including prisons, schools, care homes, homeless shelters and rehabilitation centres – Taking Part will tour I Wonder If… to similar locations in local boroughs where theatre is not usually performed.

On tour to community venues in Lambeth and Southwark 10 – 21 Oct. The Maria, 24 – 29 Oct
