BEYOND THE MASK
In 2021 we were very excited to receive NHS funding to create two online Playback performances for frontline health and care staff. These shows were part of the offer from the Staff Wellbeing Hub set up by the North East and North Cumbria Integrated Care System (part of the NHS).
We were joined by guest actors from Birmingham and Bristol, and received training from Soline Daccache (from Red Bridge Playback Theatre in Lebanon) in how Playback can be used with audiences that have experienced distress and trauma.
This was a partnership project with Serious Media, who made this short film celebrating the courage and dedication displayed by so many ordinary people in the face of such extraordinary challenges.
