Young Ferment is a collaboration between Bristol Old Vic Young Company and Bristol Old Vic’s artist development department, Ferment. It’s a programme that allows Young Company’s emerging writers, composers, directors and devisors to try out their ideas with creative support from a professional team.

Six young artists develop their ideas from page to stage, with performances of the work in The Weston Studio.

Everything is changing in Townslough. High streets closing, endless new blocks of pricey flats, and men in suits making decisions from their penthouse suites. Puzzled is about a shop, and a man, on the brink.

Enter Oskar, a teenage boy wrestling with the struggles of school, family, love, and the lure of life on road. But can you escape your destiny if someone else is calling the shots?

Concept by Alfie Morgan

A man is on a journey, away from himself and towards the unknown. Cut off. Gridless. Dead? From the edge of the forest, a nocturnal odyssey unspools into the distance.

Fairytales according to Hoyle
Concept by Will Shepherd

According to Hoyle: in accord with the highest authority; with a strict set of rules. But there are so many distractions. Bills. Kids. Emails. Phone. You are a writer. Write something!
