This weekend, we're running a Mask Making Residency for Veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress (PTS/PTSD) and health professionals caring for Veterans. Fun, informal and creative, no previous art or theatre experience is necessary.
From time to time, we're contacted about work experience placements - and if someone sounds interesting, we take them on! Our latest placement has been Joe Raybould, who's written us a blog about what it's been like.
Saw you tonight at the Torch Theatre in Milford Haven with my 11 year old daughter (she loves theatre and want to act when she is older). This production was very powerful, very moving and also light hearted and funny in places. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend this to anyone. My daughter loved it too, the masks and lack of speaking really opened up the art of acting with body and movement alone to her. Well done indeed.
I came to Theatre Severn in Shrewsbury tonight to see a brave face. I was mesmerized throughout the performance which without talking or facial expressions means the acting and production were outstanding I went from laughing crying holding my breath to wanting to say something when the young man was trying to decide whether to commit suicide.
Raising awareness of the extent of this condition is so good.
Tomorrow I will read the program. Thank you to each member of the cast and the production team it has been a truly memorable experience.
