It will be performed at Half Moon Theatre in Limehouse by students at Rose Bruford College of Performing Arts.

Colour will run for a week and explores the lives of young people as they face growing up in 2014.

As part of the show’s development the students discussed emotions with Year 5 children at the docklands primary school.

They examined questions such as the meaning of seeing red or feeling blue.

The play portrays the relationship between emotions and colour as the characters interact with family and friends.

This is the third collaboration between Half Moon, Rose Bruford students and Arhem Wharf Primary School.

Half Moon is a Tower Hamlets funded organisation working to promote the arts amongst young people.

Chris Elwell, director of Half Moon and Colour said:

“I’m delighted that we’re continuing our collaboration with Rose Bruford Students and Arnhem Wharf Primary School to create a brand new piece of theatre, which will be both entertaining and stimulating.

“The script has been developed in direct consultation with children at the school, ensuring that the voice of the show is authentic and will speak directly to the target audience.”

Colour will run for 12 performances from today until March 11. Tickets are £6 and can be or by calling 020 7709 8900.
