Jan 2nd 2015 Welcome to Pindrop Theatre

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.

Changing minds – Lets end mental health discrimination!

A National Lottery funded project that involved running a series of forum theatre workshops in Southwark, London for a group with experiences of homelessness and mental health problems.   The workshops resulted in the production and tour of the Forum Theatre show ‘Taking the PIP’ to six different locations around London.

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.
