We use highly experienced performers sensitive to the importance and impact of the issues we deal with in our work. Our plays are thoroughly researched and the ability to engage with the characters through our ‘hotseating’ sessions after the performance adds enormous value to the experience. Hotseating is the opportunity to speak to the characters in the piece in role and delve further into the reasons for their behaviour and attitudes. They won’t hold back and we expect our audiences to use the opportunity to find out as much as they can about them. This makes for a lively and informative session.
We have written original drama for performance and film that covers issues such as:
Obesity, Anorexia Nervosa, Alcoholism, Medical Error, The Winterbourne View Scandal, Terminal Illness and Patient Safety.
Our work can be used on its own, as a way to begin an organisation-wide initiative or targeted to smaller, more specialised, groups. We often work with a healthy mix of health care professionals and interested members of the public, patient representatives and people who are actively seeking to improve the lot of those who receive healthcare and those who dedicate themselves to providing it.
All of our work is made in collaboration with our clients and meticulously researched with the support of our Clinical Advisor, Dr.John Spencer, Emeritus Professor Newcastle University.
