Anything Other Theatre Company explores divisive subjects and puts underrepresented voices at the centre of its work.
“We bring people together at different ends of society to create communities on, and beyond, the stage, because we think that negotiating the sticky uncertain middle is where great stories come from. We’ll be using our residency time to work on the first draft of a new play ‘A Conscious Rebellion’, exploring the EU Referendum vote through the lens of one community: Medway, Kent.
We will focus on the history of this traditionally industrial area and in particular how the closure of the Chatham Dockyards in 1984 impacted on generations living and working in the nearby towns. We want to take the conversation beyond the liberal left echo-chamber and represent the complicated and often uncomfortable truths about our shared history, where we’ve come from and what we do now. ”
The team consists of artistic director Liz Bacon, playwright Natalie Mitchell and designer Daisy Young.
