We ran 12 workshops.  We worked with 140 Southwark residents, from the most engaged to the hardest to reach, to find out how they felt about the borough they lived in. 

 

We commissioned one script and named it 'HOME'. We filmed it at 10 locations across the borough

 

Finally we performed it live, with a community cast, to sold out audiences in 2014 at The Bussey Building in Peckham.  

 

What we uncovered with our cast and participants was a short, sharp shard of South London life; the voice of the largest, fastest changing borough in London brought to you by a community cast of residents aged 15 to 77.
