Project title: ME YOU US THEM 

Project type: Stage to Film 

 

A Melting Pan Production, Me You Us Them is a remount of 2018’s theatre production Me You Us Them by Terra Nova Productions Artistic Director, Andrea Montgomery.  The play explores real stories of racism, identity and sense of belonging in Northern Ireland, at a most crucial time worldwide amidst the Black Lives Matter movement.

 

The play introduces characters through a series of monologues, then shows lives gradually intersecting and overlapping in surprising ways, to build a picture of life as we don’t usually see it on the Northern Ireland stage. Me You Us Them is an angry, but funny, occasionally shocking play, which ultimately leaves us uplifted and thoughtful.  

 

It is supported by the Arts Councils of England and Northern Ireland and by Belfast City Council.  This is a film of a theatre production, and seeks to inhabit the fascinating hinterland between the two artforms, taking the best of both.

 

You can find out more about the original production at Me You Us Them and about Terra Nova’s intercultural and ethical work at What We Do
