YOU ARE NOT GOING TO STOP ME

“You Are not Going to Stop me” is an original play devised by people with mental health challenges in partnership with the charity Make, Do and Mend which makes us face the uncertainty of living without hope, and experience the beauty of loving without being judged.

During the process of 50+ sessions, participants dared to exceed their creative limits and understand the issues they wanted to talk about. They were active creators of their own theatre play, coming up with ideas, writing the script and finally performing it.

THE RISE AND FALL OF MARIO SANCHEZ

“The rise and fall of Mario Sanchez” is an original play devised by people suffering from homelessness in partnership with the organisation Wintercomfort. This project brought together homeless people and individuals who care about social causes in the creation of a theatre production that challenges traditional prejudices and is based around issues of power, loneliness and new opportunities.

Performance Details

The play was performed several times in Cambridge during 2015, including Cambridge TV, and as part of the NSS conference at the University of Warwick
