Catch up on ‘Stolen Time’ this August

"See what happens when Imogen wanders into the woods..." The new play from Martina Collender has got our attention.

This wouldn’t be the first time we’ve spoken about looked at how COVID-19 has impacted teens’ lives here in Waterford. So many young people have missed out on many major milestones this year and have to accept that they won’t get that time back. With no debs to look forward to, no final exams or partying with friends, it’s been something that the talented Waterford playwright Martina Collender has captured with her magical new play ‘Stolen Time‘.

Get ready to be drawn into Imogen’s magical world…

Step inside the magical world of Stolen Time

See what happens when Imogen wanders into the woods where nobody goes because many years ago a child had a tragic accident there. What is it about these woods that makes them so strange and eerie and what is that sound that she follows? Will Imogen ever emerge again and does she even know what’s real or imaginary anymore…”

Martina Collender is joining forces with director Liam Meagher to bring you something very special. Waterford Youth Arts (WYA)will perform the play at Wyse Park, Waterford on Monday, August 24th at 9 pm. Throughout the year, WYA put on lots of creative activities for young people to get involved in the community and are recognised as one of the leading arts organisations in Ireland.
