If at 65 you could say something to yourself at 23, what would it be?
A mystery tour, with live performance, aboard a custom-made double decker bus.
The streets of Redcar become the stage as you take a tour aboard IOUs custom-made open top bus for an unforgettable journey. Beginning in a drawing class at the Nursery Zone, Kirkleatham, Rear View quickly becomes a moving adventure about a womans life led by performance poets Cecilia Knapp or Jemima Foxtrot. Reflections, predictions and observations blur the line between reality and fiction.
