We believe in theatre that makes a difference, and so each of our projects is supported by an outreach programme that enhances and enriches the experience of audience and participants
We invite people to train in collecting oral histories, offering expert tuition; and these stories and memories are often used within the performance to inspire and inform the script.
We offer themed workshops in schools, colleges and community groups; and we invite people to take part, whether as contributors or participants, as choirs, musicians or dancers, alongside our professional casts.
We work with university departments and local specialists and historians, to add a depth and richness to our research and workshops.
And we work with a range of partner organisations and individuals to ensure the highest quality in outreach, engagement and performance.
