Theatre Gives Kids Hope
“It’s so far removed from their everyday life. Some of them are homeless, and struggling to find food, and in very abusive homes, or not with their parents at all. To put themselves into this world (of live theatre) that takes them away and gives them the hope of a world that they can have I think was a massive thing.”
