LIVING THE DRAMA
ABOUT LIVING THE DRAMA
Living the Drama's aims are:
1. To encourage creative new writing for people of all ages, ability and experience, including those with many years experience
of life and ‘living the drama’. Drama is a powerful medium making us laugh, cry, rage and reflect. Our normal, everyday lives witness comedic moments, tragic loss, ethical dilemmas and grave injustices. It is through writing memorable plays that we reach out to touch the hearts and minds of others.
2. To take the best plays forward to full professional production, creating a Community Project for all to join in and support.
3. To look for ways in which we can widen participation in theatre, by connecting to audiences in 'hard to reach' venues.
At Living the Drama we value:
We treat each individual with respect, offering friendship and encouraging open communication. We deeply appreciate our volunteers who work with us on Community Production Projects.
We cherish artistic freedom; freedom to play, risk and experiment, to express opinions and feelings however controversial.
We follow sound commercial business practice - always striving for quality and efficiency, aiming to bring out the best in what we do and who we are, so the company can thrive as a social enterprise.
We try to cut through unnecessary bureaucracy, adopting a straightforward approach which everyone can understand, keeping promises and always following up.
