From Our Town to Your Town
In November 2014, the current production of Our Town will be taken to two schools in outer London. The entire cast and crew will travel to Bexley and Ealing to perform the full show in these school halls for the students from each school. Neither borough has a professional theatre, so we have made a commitment to take the production, and ultimately our theatre, right to them.

"We are delighted that we are able to take our production of Our Town to schools in Bexley and Ealing; two boroughs without professional theatres. The work that Almeida Projects does with schools and young people is enormously inspiring, and I am so glad that we are able to continue to find exciting ways to bring our work to more young people across London."
- Rupert Goold, Artistic Director
Alongside these one-off performances, students from each school will explore the idea of community through a project called Your Town.
Watch this space for updates on the project as it develops.

Last Words You'll Hear
The Almeida Theatre presents
Last Words You’ll Hear
18-20 July 2014
at Latitude Festival
A new piece of theatre devised by the Young Friends of the Almeida, under the direction of Whitney Mosery
What truths lie underneath the surface of the status quo? What secrets do we keep from ourselves? And how do our fears keep us from connecting with each other? “The most daring and exciting theatre in London” (Evening Standard) presents the world premiere of Last Words You’ll Hear, devised and performed by The Young Friends of the Almeida, which takes inspiration from Strindberg, Jung, Prometheus and PostSecret, and challenges the assumption that self-defining has replaced self-reflection.
Young Friends of the Almeida offers workshops, projects and work placements made especially for young people aged 13 – 25. For more information about the Almeida Theatre’s broad and creative learning programme of high quality and innovative activity for, by and with young people, click here.
