Things to do in a blackout

Radio drama

During WW2 crime rose by a reported 57%. Fraud, gang culture, looting and robbery impacted on people’s everyday life. Along with poverty, hunger, illness and exceptional pressure- what was home really like?

Prior to lockdown, we were planning a series of live performances to mark the research undertaken with young people people. From June 2020, we are inviting schools and groups to join a company of actors to help find a new voice for this research.

We are making a radio drama, depicting a street during the Blitz. Every house has a story, every house contains an episode. Help us make it.
