BRITISH HARLEQUIN - Bright & Colourful Harlequin Reversible Is Centre Stage For Youth Theatre

Stage2 Youth Theatre, "Birmingham’s busiest and biggest youth theatre," used Harlequin Reversible™ as an essential feature of the set for the premiˆ®re of two new productions from the pen of Claire Dowie.

Better known as a floor where either side can be used as a dance surface, it was the "bright and colourful" appearance that put Harlequin Reversible™ centre stage in "Arsehammers". Set designers Acquis Media Ltd used the different colour options available to create a giant snakes and ladders board populated by young actors wearing luminous costumes and rolling giant dice to ascend ladders or slither back down snakes. The central characters, a young boy and his sister innocently believed that Arsehammers, their mispronunciation of the Alzheimers illness that had afflicted their grandfather, had given him super human powers.

By contrast "The Year of the Monkey" explored a darker theme where it was green Harlequin Reversible™ that complimented the themed costumes of the cast and a green tree that expanded to form a strand of DNA. Khalid Daley describing "The Year of the Monkey" said: "With the cast entering the stage, they sat down on black stools which were the only other set used in the play as the show unfolded into a masterpiece".

Supplied by Chris Cuthbert of Midlands based Acquis Media Ltd, "Harlequin Reversible™ was used in the Crescent Studio at The Crescent Theatre, Sheepcote Street, Brindleyplace where Stage2 Youth Theatre performed the premiˆ®res of their two productions. Harlequin Reversible™ was also used at the Dovehouse Theatre, Olton, Solihull at the BDTG Festival where the casts of Arsehammers and The Year of The Monkey performed their shows for the One Act Play Category as part of Birmingham’s Festival of Acting and Musical Entertainment (BFAME). " Overall Stage2 Youth Theatre won eight awards including Best Direction (Liz Light), Best Adult One Act Play (The Year of The Monkey) and Best Youth One Act Play (Arsehammers) and nominated for an additional thirteen awards including two for technical achievement.
