We Live Here Too
Last Autumn Cumbernauld Theatre Company presented Full House; a production which was staged as part of a series of new performances made with members of our community.
Spanning a 5 month period of intensive work with a family (Craig McManus and Darren Soave) a bespoke performance about their lives was created.
The performance was part of the We Live Here Too programme – a three year creative collaboration celebrating the theme of family- bringing to the stage real life drama with stories from people living in and around the Cumbernauld and Kilsyth area.
We Live Here too aims to:
Connect with real families in the Cumbernauld area and celebrate their story through theatrical performance.
Create an opportunity for a family to receive a high quality arts experience removing all potential barriers to participation
Create a dynamic and professional performance piece, through collaboration and engagement.
The application process will soon be open for families wishing to take part in year two of this unique participatory experience.
