ADP: A Direct Message 20 AUG 2022
Saturday 20th August

45 young people, 12 days, 1 brand-new musical

Story by Sumāh Ebelé

Devised by the ADP 2022 Company

Tomorrow is for new beginnings, but tonight might just be the biggest night of their lives…

Some will take a chance to say all the things they never said. And some will just walk away. But whatever happens, everyone is going to be there. One last time?

But when an unknown number, sends a shocking DM, everything changes.

A Direct Message explores the experiences of young people; their joy, their sadness, their loss, their triumph and everything in between.

The Artist Development Programme (ADP) is a two-week summer programme produced by Hackney Empire: Creative Futures. In just twelve days a company of 45 young artists and creatives, aged 14 – 19 years old, are mentored by industry professionals to create and present a sensational piece of new and original musical theatre.
