The Lost Boy has been written by playwright Stephanie Dale, writer of the highly-acclaimed 2013 production of the Chester Mystery Plays, and is directed by Kate McGregor – whose recent work includes Moira Buffini’s critically acclaimed Gabrielle, starring Paul McGann.

The play is a groundbreaking project that addresses the changing communities of Britain, and how our society is adapting.

Theatre in the Quarter have just released new images of the cast and director Kate McGregor at work during rehearsals.

The project has been in development for over a year and has involved consultation with young people across Chester and Manchester who have shared their varied views and opinions on asylum seekers and refugees.
