In November, Actors Touring Company (ATC) launched their Signal Fires project. They commissioned three playwrights from around the globe to write a letter to tomorrow, a letter of hope, for audiences to perform in their own home.

Written in a time of uncertainty they offered the chance to create a unique moment of optimistic home theatre. As we move into 2021, the uncertainty we all thought would become more certain, hasn’t and there’s still a deep need for hope so the project lives on as we bring you Dear Tomorrow – Hope from Home…

We have partnered up with ATC to turn Dear Tomorrow into a digital project, as part of our Artistic Director's Natalie Ibu’s inaugural season.

Six writers have been commissioned to write a letter of hope that will then be performed to camera by actors from across the UK and available for you to stream for free from 22 February, as small gifts from us to you.

This letter was written by Nemo Martin and performed by Kenya Sterling (Ovalhouse's I Am)

Music composed by Beldina Odenyo Onassis

Conceived and developed by Matthew Xia & Natalie Ibu

Commissioned by Northern Stage & Actors Touring Company
