Performed from Thu 10 — Sat 12 Aug

Black and white images of two Senior Youth Theatre members shouting, jumping and stomping sit on a black background. Bright pink wording at the top of the image reads 'Metamorphoses,' with white text around it reading 'The New Wolsey Senior Youth Theatre, by arrangement with Nick Hern Books, presents' and 'Inspired by Ovid and written by Sami Ibrahim, Laura Lomas and Sabrina Mahfouz.' The white New Wolsey logo is in the top-left corner.
