Event description

Description

"A beautiful coming together of different people finding a common ground."

Staging Recovery is an ensemble of people from the West Midlands community, exploring their individual and collective recovery journeys through theatre and drama. This includes all kinds of recovery, from substance misuse, mental health issues and trauma, to experiences with criminal justice or homelessness. Geese Theatre Company facilitate a number of projects throughout the year with the ensemble and support them to perform at venues across the region. This is a unique opportunity to experience the ensemble’s latest piece entitled Switched On which they devised during May 2019.

Switched On is an amusing, satirical and poignant exploration of the relationship between the media, addiction and recovery. The ensemble invite you to reflect on your own perceptions of people who are affected by addiction, and will leave you with a lot to think about the next time you switch on your TV.

The Staging Recovery ensemble is supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation.
