Using the performing arts to promote social inclusion | a registered charity since 2007
Pindrop Theatre was founded to use theatre and all the performing arts to promote social inclusion – theatre for change.
Blasting Stigma – a project to challenge mental health discrimination and to change minds!
We worked this year with a group offering workshops then a devising and writing process to make a play, ‘Taking the PIP’ was the result…..
Based on the experiences of members of the group this is a moving story of Sam who is in the process of applying for the PIP, the new disability benefit. Devised and performed by the group. The audience were invited after each show to participate in a re-run of the events in the show and contribute to the debate on finding solutions to challenging the discrimination of mental health problems.
