7 Billion Others and Me

Lyceum Youth Theatre presents

7 Billion Others and Me

Directed by Christie O'Carroll | Devised by the Company

Sat 31 May 2014 | 7.30pm (45mins running time) | £5

In 1930 by request, the people of St Kilda, the most remote part of Scotland, were evacuated. It is thought that only one of the original inhabitants is still alive. The world’s population has since hit 7 billion.

LYT want to explore what it is like to live in a world where there are more people living than have ever before, and what it means to be from a tiny country with a big reputation that’s about to make a huge decision.


Further to this event, we invite you to take part in a free and bespoke workshop targeted specifically at the young people you collaborate with.

Throughout a series of multiple art form activities, the workshop programme for 7 Billion Others and Me will examine the importance of voting as well as exploring the history of Scotland and the events which have brought the people who live in this country together.

The workshops can run at your own venue any time between 6-30 May. The target audience is for those of voting age but we can cater for those slightly younger also. Taking part in the workshop will also give you free entry to the evening performance.

If you would like to book tickets/discuss reduction in ticket price for large group bookings/ask us about financial support for group transportation, please email Jodie@thearches.co.uk.
