In these unprecedented times we wanted to do something creative that brings people together and addresses social isolation. Connect and Do!

We are an Inclusive Theatre Company. Our actors and artists come from a diverse range of backgrounds and include disabled people, homeless people and refugees. We work in partnership with charities to achieve our aim of creating theatre which gives people a voice and tells their stories. Our current project, People's Theatre for Marginalised Adults supported by The Mayor of London's Culture Seeds, has been suspended due to Covid-19. We have taken our work online with Connect and Do Drama. We are making work exploring how the current situation is affecting people. The film is something we made together in isolation. I received Arts Council emergency funding as an individual artist which is going towards Connect and Do Drama but I don't know how much longer we will have to operate in this way. We have made more films like this, with lots of people involved. After the pandemic we want to return with our most poignant show yet, exploring the crisis and the way out and looking to the future.

Let's make 'People's Theatre - Connect and Do Drama' happen
