Stories to Stage
We work with groups of people who share a common event, interest, occupation or location. We research, listen to and digitally record their stories. We take the transcript of those recordings and through writing workshops, help communities to create a performance piece to share with new audiences. We will lead participants through rehearsal to finished performance. There’s a place for everyone – onstage and behind the scenes. We perform in non-traditional venues – pubs, community halls, libraries. Our way of working is called the Stories to Stage model.
It's In the Blood!
In 2017 we ran a Stories to Stage project about Rugby League heritage, jointly funded by the HLF and RLC. You can see a performance here. The cast brought together veteran players and fans from Rochdale and Oldham alongside young amateur actors.
