In co-creation with the women from Pause, North East
What would you do if a neighbour started to leave food on your doorstep? It’s the first national lockdown, two women, both strangers, step out and across the line that divides them.
Lasagna is based on the true life experiences of women who have lost multiple children to the care system. It celebrates community, generosity and humanity.
From the company behind Key Change – New York Times Critics’ Pick and Sugar on BBC iPlayer “It gives an accurate representation of many women’s experiences…” Collaborator from Pause, North East
“Lasagna is about community and what is needed in order to not only survive but to thrive and grow. To reimagine and invest in a society that supports all of us to live the best lives we can.” Writer of Lasagna and Artistic Director, Catrina McHugh MBE
