Exeter Northcott Theatre Presents


  • Show Information
  • Company

It starts normally enough. Five friends meeting at university and beginning to navigate their way towards adult life. Together, they party, attempt to get jobs, form relationships, and try to find some stability in a chaotic world. But when an earth-shattering event disrupts everything they know, their lives change, possibly forever, prompting each of them to ask whether it’ll ever be possible to get back to the way things were?

Footprints is a brand-new piece of theatre, exploring the climate crisis and how we, as individuals, affect the world around us.

This production has been created in collaboration between a team of professional artists and students from University of Exeter’s Drama Department, as part of Exeter Northcott Theatre’s on-going commitment to supporting the next generation of theatre makers.

We can’t wait to welcome you to the theatre and we’re taking active steps to ensure that everyone can feel safe, relaxed and enjoy the show. Read our latest Covid measures here.
