Celebrating 50 years of people coming together at the Orange Tree Theatre; sitting in a circle, and sharing in a story, or a poem, or a song, or a dance or maybe a joke, different generations, genders, backgrounds, opinions.

The more people spend time in close proximity with each other, the more their heartbeats start to sync up. Beat a similar rhythm.

We invite you to come share the rhythm of our beating heart as our community groups from babies to over 60s join up to perform an exciting intergenerational performance devised themselves. Around 80 people onstage at the Orange Tree at the same time! 

Directed by Jen Bakst alongside community group directors Scott Le Crass, Rio Fry, Harry Gould, Madi Mahoney and Hannah De Ville, exploring themes of comedy, music, history and pop culture through the ages, and the eyes of all involved, and how these have evolved. 


✅ Book with confidence: If a show is postponed or cancelled, we will offer credit for a future performance or a refund. If you or a member of your group cannot attend the performance just let us know up to 24 hours beforehand and we’ll help you exchange into an alternative performance or you can have credit to use another time.

All performances are at full capacity.

✅ We ask you to please consider wearing a mask when joining us for a performance, to protect the actors and reduce risk of cancellations, however it is not a requirement of entry.
