In partnership with Speakers Collective we hosted post-show panel discussions across the tour, with guests including Mental Health campaigner Jon Salmon, Talk Club UK co-founder Ben Akers, Co-director of Freedom of Mind Festival Cai Burton, CEO of HOOT Creative Arts Gavin Clayton, Andrew Greenaway of Andy’s Man Club, Co-founder of If U Care, Share campaign group Shirley Smith, actor and mental health campaigner Danny Rahim, mental health campaigner Angela Samata consultant clinical psychologist Kath Davies, writer and podcaster Chris O’Connor and Community Director Claire Irving.
We toured a ‘sharing board’ to each city across the tour which became a physical space for audiences to ‘share the things that help make you feel better’ alongside the hashtag ReasonsPlay on twitter.
The Mindfulness in Schools charity were commissioned to create a Discussion guide for the production.
We worked with local partners and charities to identify groups and community members for whom the production might resonate but may not necessarily book to see a theatre show and offered free/discounted tickets.
