We need your help
With rehearsals just over a week away for the premiere of our production of The Island Nation at the Arcola Theatre, and with one key source of expected funding not coming through, we are reaching out to you, our friends and supporters, to help us tell audiences about one of the great untold war stories of our time.
Click the image above to watch a two minute film about the story behind The Island Nation and if, like us, you believe it’s a story that needs to be told then head over to our Just Giving Page and give what you can.
As we are recipients of an Arts Council Catalyst Evolve grant, YOUR DONATION WILL BE DOUBLED. So every little really does make a huge difference.

We are thrilled to announce our cast:
Clare Dargo (Shetland), Ayesha Dharker (Star Wars III, RSC), Bally Gill (RSC), Clive Hayward (Emmerdale), Nikki Patel (Coronation St) and Neran Persaud (The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen).

A sell-out success
Earlier this month,our collaboration with Freedom from Torture Lost and Found was presented to a sell-outaudience for one night only at The Roundhouse.
The reaction was overwhelming with stunning music by Ana Silvera, with Alice Zawadski and Will Roberts and beautifully poignant accounts from the Write To Life contributors woven together by our Artistic Director Christine Bacon.
If you missed it, don’t worry! A professionally recorded audio download will be available. More details soon.
