YELLOW IS THE COLOUR OF SUNSHINE

by Brendan Murray

 

Yoshi and Hani are as different as chalk is to cheese:

One big, one small

One noisy, one quiet

Side by side they play by the blue sea, run through the green fields and dance in the yellow sunshine. But one day the sky turns grey and everything starts to change…

Will the sun ever come out again?

 

Yellow is the Colour of Sunshine is a charming new play about two friends who learn to communicate about their feelings. A story told by three performers; using words, BSL and dance.

Award winning writer Brendan Murray collaborates with tutti frutti to bring you a show full of beautiful multi-coloured delights, for children to think about, be inspired by and enjoy.

Ages 3+

Duration: 1 hour

Film description

It’s 1994, and best mates Johnno and Spanner share a deep bond: their love of electronic dance music. On the cusp of adulthood. life is destined to take them in very different directions – but not this summer. The explosion of the free party scene and the largest counter-cultural youth movement in recent history is happening across the UK, and the pair want a taste. In pursuit of one last night together, they journey into an underworld of anarchy and freedom that with brutal and euphoric consequences.

Adapted from a play by Kieran Hurley by director Brian Welsh (In Our Name), and shot in striking black & white, Beats is universal story of friendship, rebellion and the irresistible power of gathered youth, set to a soundtrack as eclectic and electrifying as the scene it gave birth to.

SHOWING AS PART OF GROWING PAINS

Growing pains is a small season, bringing together films that have at their heart stories about young people, their experiences, and their perspectives on the world.
