Getting Ready


The whole team has been busy rehearsing for our Northeast tour, getting ready for our opening night on Thursday 29th September at Alphabetti Theatre in Newcastle and running until October 14th across a range of arts venues with a compelling performance from Christina Berriman Dawson, Rosie Stancliffe and Ellie North.

We’d like to thank The Witham in Barnard Castle for letting us use their space last weekend, we all especially liked the delicious food served up in their café and we are also grateful to Space Six in Newcastle for letting us take us take over studio one.

Polly Turner (Project Manager and Set Designer) has been busy getting creative and crafting with the women from Be Creative in Stanley to bring the stage to life and Soundscape artist Rupert Philbrick has blown us all away with his electrifying harmonies that have brought us all to tears.

A special thank you to Edward Cole of Middle Child Theatre in Hull and Northeast based Choreographer Alys North who have been working their professional socks off alongside our wonderful Writer /Director Rachel Adamson to enhance the theatrical aspects of our powerful and heartfelt performance.

After two successful pilot performances of our work in progress last year,  we are excited to be in the process of developing and enhancing our production of Make do and Mend, ready for touring this September and October.

We are proud to welcome Ed Cole from experienced cultural producer Middle Child Theatre based in Hull and Alys North an exceptionally talented young performer and choreographer based in Newcastle, who have been working alongside Rachel Adamson (Writer/Director) to bring our real women’s stories to life on the stage. We also wish to welcome Rosie Stancliffe who will be joining the cast to take on the role of Lorna.

This work has already been highly received on both a local and international platform, and is supported by funding from Arts Council England, Awards for All and the Community Health Revenue Fund and Phillis Spearman Grassroots Fund via the County Durham Community Foundation fund, all of whom we wish to show are gratitude.
