In 2017 we ran community workshops at the Electric Palace Cinema in the Old Town in Hastings. The aim of the work was to focus on relevant issues e.g. women in society, greed, ruthless ambition. Each person took a line, we discussed the meaning in the scene and it was then cast gender blind and performed for the group. We worked on scenes from Macbeth, As You Like It, King John, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Twelfth Night, Othello and Romeo and Juliet.
