Dates and Times
21 October 2014 to 21 October 2014 at 7.30pm
A collaborative event, presented by SHP and 184 Royal College Street (CRI)
SHP and 184 are hugely proud to present to you the first of these joint productions, created entirely by local Camden residents in recovery
In the wake of The War to End All Wars, a group of unsuspecting citizens find themselves assembled in an empty room. With no idea where they are, or why they’ve been thrown together, this unlikely group must dig deep into each others’ souls to come to terms with some unsettling home truths, before they can step up to the greatest responsibility they’ve ever had to face…
The performance will last for 20 minutes, and there will be a Q&A with the cast afterwards.
SHP Camden Aftercare

About the Drama Programme
This is a new part of the Camden Recovery scene. Its aim is to guide participants through the process of devising, producing and staging their own production, on a theme of their choice. All the concepts, characters and dialogue have come from the clients, some of whom have absolutely no prior theatre experience. All of them are in recovery and have various substance abuse/offending backgrounds. We believe in the redemptive, rehabilitative power of theatre practice, and through the course of the programme, participants have grown hugely in terms of their self-confidence, self-esteem and faith in others. They offer peer support to one another, and are realising their creative potential in a safe, structured and non-judgmental setting.
