Storm in the North: Idlib

Performance, writing, food and stories

Storm in the North is a new production company making irresistible theatre for curious people. The incredibly powerful Idlib is an extract from the award-winning play The Syrian Baker by Kevin Dyer, with a hypnotic central performance by Paislie Reid.

A friendly, relaxed writing session exploring the audience’s food experiences and memories followed the performance and then delicious Syrian bread was cooked on the spot and eaten together with three Middle Eastern mezzes.

Idlib was an incredibly intimate and moving piece, sharing the stories and experiences of people living in two very different parts of the world.
