‘Til We Win

Extraordinary Bodies Young Artists perform Till We Win at Lighthouse Poole - the young company are on stage, gathered together, shouting with fierce expressions and arms punching to the air.


A postman, a detective and a super hero walk into a bar…

This is the rural town of Bournechester, nothing is quite what it seems.

We follow the town’s residents on their greatest mission for a purpose bigger than themselves.

A show about pigeons, park benches and the price of vodka.

Expect captioning, experimental audio description and disco.  


‘Til We Win is a new physical theatre production devised by Extraordinary Bodies Young Artists (EBYA). Created from a series of creative discussions, EBYA have looked into their communities locally in Dorset, nationally and internationally and responded in theatre, comedy and dance.  

‘Til We Win is an expression of what it means to be young in 2019 having to make sense of Brexit, rising unemployment, and falling in love… all at the same time. The show comes directly from the thoughts, hopes, fears, dreams and frustrations of 10 interesting, quirky young people with a unique perspective on the world.

This is an invite to come on the journey with us.


‘Til We Win premiered on Tuesday 10th April 2019 at Lighthouse Poole’s Centre for the Arts. EBYA is performing the show next on 15th October 2019 as part of No Place for Hate at The BIC.



This project has been funded by the Youth Social Action Programme. ‘Til We Win has developed over the last year, with EBYA members receiving coaching to support the show.

This creative work has generated a powerful social action outcome, as EBYA members are representing themselves and finding their voices. #iwill is a UK-wide campaign aiming to get 6 out of 10 young people involved in social action by 2020. Big Lottery Fund and the Department of Culture, Media & Sport have invested £20 million each to the #iwill fund, to support young people to access high quality social action opportunities.
