Playing House was our first theatre production, performed in 2014.
It was an original piece of theatre written and directed by Katie Tranter co directed by Alys North and performed by Alys North, Hannah Thompson and Patricia Suarez.
It was a brave and challenging interactive verbatim performance based on testimonials collected from local women over tea and cake in the Durham area about their experiences of Domestic abuse.
The performance was created and performed by local female practitioners together with women from the local community and featured an ensemble cast of community and professional performers.
During the performance the audience were invited to watch live theatre and dance, share their own stories, discuss the issues raised with performers and professionals all within the setting of an immersive theatre set based on a home like yours or mine complete with tea and cake at the kitchen table.
The content of this event dealt with emotional, physical and sexual abuse.
