Maya Production's newest play, The Croydon Avengers, by Oladipo Agboluaje, draws inspiration from a cross-arts participatory project that Maya Production ran with young people and refugees in Croydon, South London.
The Croydon Avengers is specifically aimed at young audiences (age 8-14) and its unique style blends comic book visuals with action-packed martial arts to tell a funny powerful story of terrorist threats, heroism and true friendship in an England that seems frightened of anyone who's different. The comic is illustrated by Shane Melisse.
Check out the educational resources we've developed to go alongside this comic here.
The Croydon Avengers is presented in a co-production with Ovalhouse and Harrogate Theatre and in association with LittleMighty. Supported using public funding from the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Croydon Council, Teale Charitable Trust and Newcomen Collett Foundation.
