The 30-minute performance allowed onlookers to wear headphones and listen to disco music which Lydia and Daniel danced to in Spalding’s Market Place.

Boy Meets Girl was also taken to Crowland, Holbeach and Long Sutton as part of Transported’s mission to encourage more people in South Holland to take up artistic activities.

Toby Ealden, artistic director at Zest Theatre, said: “Being commissioned by Transported is a really exciting

opportunity for Zest Theatre.

“This project not only allows us to create some really groundbreaking theatre, but also gives us the chance to make work

that will be shared right in the heart of the community.

“We hope audiences will leave our performances feeling enthralled, intrigued and inspired to want to experience more of the arts.”
