THE PRINCESS CASTAWAY AND OTHER TIME MACHINE STORIES

“The Princesses Castaway and Other Time Machine Stories” is an inclusive theatre performance made by creative people with learning disabilities who take part in Acting Now´s drama group at  Rowan. With weekly sessions since 2015, the workshops aims to help people with learning disabilities to discover their talents, learn new skills and gain confidence.

For this project, the participants worked from a handful of tales and ideas that they individually suggested. As part of the creative process, the group selected and connected the stories into an individual piece, applying a physical theatre narrative to shape the final play.

The performance challenges audiences with issues such as the pressure of ageing and the inner power human beings have to change their lives when they feel trapped.

This was the first piece devised by the group, which was performed during Chesterton Community Festival in 2016.
