Young People’s Workshop: Making Autobiographical Theatre

As part of the birthday celebrations, The Conker Group are offering a hands-on workshop to young creatives aged 15-25 inspired by upcoming HOME co-production Gutted.

Gutted is a shameless tale of love, laughter and lavatories, based on performer Liz Richardson’s real life experience of living with Ulcerative Colitis (similar to Crohn’s Disease). But if this sounds heavy, DO NOT FEAR! The show’s main aim is to get people laughing whilst thinking about the things we avoid talking about and why we avoid talking about them. Fun is high on the agenda for this workshop!

A one-off chance to learn from the show’s creators Liz, and director/writer Tara Robinson, the workshop will mix improvisation, discussion and play.
