A Forgotten Place

Self Assemble Theatre

Self Assemble Theatre returns with a new production titled ‘A Forgotten Place’

This play is set in 1920’s rural England where a village lays amongst a valley, remote from other local towns or cities.

The play follows the story of a young woman who falls in love with a stranger and is thrown into emotional turmoil when she discovers her home, the village, is to be destroyed and sunk to make way for the building of a new dam.


Self Assemble Theatre continues to make solo devised theatre performance. The company is committed to developing imaginative theatre that offers strong engaging stories and characters that all share a common and universal appeal to new and existing audiences.
