Drama 4 Change produced an emotive piece for the  arrival of the Knife Angel monument against Violence and Aggression in June 2021. The Cracked Slipper Company worked with The Knife Angel Team Hereford producing a filmed piece for the opening ceremony, providing workshops through out June and a live performance at the closing ceremony. Alison Davies lost her son Mark to knife crime in December 2018 and together with friends Meryl Cain, Pauline Strong and Jan Jefferies they wanted to raise awareness of the catastrophic impact violent crime has on individuals, families and communities. Drama 4 Change being an issue based drama group felt that it was important for young voices to be heard and they expressed this through the creative piece written and performed by young people. 

 

Drama 4 Change productions

 

The “Drama for Change” group will put on a live production in October/November to showcase their work. Tickets will be sold at an affordable price. The revenue will go towards the future development of this group.

Plans for the Cracked Slipper Company

 

Workshops in the Summer Holidays

The Cracked Slipper Company will be offering a free to attend programme of Summer workshops for Summer 2022. Watch this space.

 

Community Cohesion work

The Cracked Slipper Company would like to offer a range of free resources to extend learning from our social issue drama into the classroom and with other organisations and services. We would like to use issue based drama workshops using drama to ignite conversations, questions and topics to think about.

THE SHOW MUST GO ON !

The Cracked Slipper Company is offering a unique opportunity for people of all ages and abilities to get involved with a community Theatre project called “The Show Must Go on”. This group meets at 7pm every Monday in the Kindle Centre and in June they will put on a live performance for the local community.

There are lots of reasons for getting involved with this group like learning drama skills, creative writing, making friends and having fun and being part of a fabulous community project.

WORKSHOPS 

Summer 2020 The Cracked Slipper Company was involved with The Fit and Fed Programme at Hinton Community Centre. We also ran a Campaign workshop with Young people choosing the topic that they wanted to Highlight. The group chose LGBTQ+ and they created a campaign with a film, live performance, and a poster.
