These Walls

York Theatre Royal Youth Theatre 14-16s

These Walls is a new play that brings to life the history of the Debtors' Prison and the people who lived, worked and died there.

An ensemble cast of 14–16 year olds lead the audience through the Castle Museum, animating the spaces and giving breath to the stories that are held in the fabric of these old walls. As they move through time and location, the audience is invited to take part as witness, onlooker, gallows mob, new inmate and Gaoler’s guest, invited in (for a fee) to rub shoulders with notorious felons.
