Our latest drama production, A Cut Above the Rest by Claire Demmer, was funded by the University of York. Four drama students helped our players tackle a tricky knockabout farce about a diamond heist. The university is now running a research study into the benefits of Zoom drama for older people.
Unlike regular drama groups, ours is completely inclusive: we never come off script, so you don’t need to learn lines; and it’s all done sitting-down, which is great for older people with mobility challenges. Most of all, it’s a lot of fun.

Our next Zoom production will also be sponsored by the University of York. It’s a 40s film-noir-style production called Who Killed Santa. If you know an older person who might like to get involved, please contact [email protected].
