Word Lounge Theatre Company is a youth theatre for children in care, young carers and young people with additional educational needs who are passionate about theatre and performance.  Which will take place Saturday mornings from January to April 2023.

Women & Theatre will deliver a programme of weekly sessions & half term activity at Midlands Arts Centre (MAC), working with up to 20 young people. The work will be led by the ideas of the young people and will culminate in a live production which incorporates drama, music and film. 

The performances will be presented in the Foyle studio at MAC to an audience of family, friends and members of the general public. The project will be led by the young people allowing them to express their ideas and opinions to diverse audiences. The production’s digital elements –film & music – will also be shared with online audiences.

Creative activity will include devising scripts, writing songs, and creating films for the final performance. The young people will learn different performance and filmmaking skills and explore different roles as part of the creative process including set making, film editing and stage management.
