Can This Be England? is based on actual experiences. The play will usually be followed be a discussion session in which members of the audience will have a chance to tell their own stories.
The idea behind this production is that the play may be performed very simply, with minimum rehearsal. Scripts are carried throughout and few props are used. It can take place in any room of a suitable size, and there is no need for stage lighting.
The original script is freely available to all who wish to use it (for non-commercial purposes). Click HERE to download a PDF file. If you do find it useful we'd be very interested... please e-mail any feedback to one of the Show and Tell Theatre Company.
