End of Tour and Catrina's new blog
"This is only the 2nd time I've been to the theatre,
and I can't speak for other women, I only know my own ways,
but when that travelling girl was talking,
that was a picture of me"
- Connie, Traveller
We would like to say a massive thank you to all the actors, the crew, the creative team, the hosts and venues, and to each and every one of you who came along to see The Space Between Us, not to mention all the individuals that informed the piece.
We ended the tour at Live Theatre on Saturday 20th April and our lovely cast and crew are now dispersed back around the UK and Europe – it was an absolute pleasure to work with such talented people.
We have had some great feedback from the groups who informed the characters, audience members and policy-makers – see some of the reaction here and we would love it if you would get in touch to tell us what you thought about the play.
Read Catrina's new blog 'Overcoming challenges and realising The Space Between Us' about writing the play and the challenges that she faced in creating this thought-provoking piece of work.
