• “About Freefall: The content was pitched at a good level for this audience of young carers and Key Stage 3 pupils. The script was superb and the acting was amazing. Teacher Onslow St Audrey's”

  • “About Freefall: The play revealed exactly how I feel. I have lots of responsibility at home… It would be great if more people understood. Young Carer in Suffolk”

  • “About Epiphany: Awesome production! Very compelling. A beautiful mix of hip hop and more than dancing- the theatre really emphasised this…Wished I was as creative as you guys. I connected to the stories…the passion and love. Would recommend it! Inya Be, 18 Dance Choregrapher and Leader of Urban Shadows”

  • “About All Fall Away: The work might seem less impressive than it is without a superb production from Stuart Mullins. Despite some dodgy accents, it spirits you away to the vast metropolis. Samantha's son, possibly autistic, is played by a puppet, brilliantly manipulated by Seong Kyun Yoo, and Liza Hayden is excellent as Esmeralda, the Duncans' nine-year-old neighbour, who is as sharp as a rat. At the raging drama's still centre is Tanya Franks's shining Samantha, a woman who is gloriously and essentially human in her courage and determination. Lyn Gardner The Guardian”

  • “About Hidden: Excellent...Very Captivating. Passionately performed. It is a very vital story, told in an accessible way. Global issues on a local scale. Youth Worker Y Theatre, Leicester”


Freefall - A Young Carer Never Surrenders in a collaboration with Unit Twenty Three. Funded by Arts Council England, local authorities in Suffolk and Hertfordshire, and Awards for All.

Our Spring 2017 tour took place throughout February and March, visiting over 8 schools in East Anglia and 3 arts venues too. Over 1,100 young people aged 11 – 16 participated with the production in just three weeks, plus industry and care professionals and key teachers. Our tour took us to the top of Norfolk, over to Hertfordshire and the outskirts of London and Suffolk too. We also visited The John Peel Centre, March Town Hall and Hertford Theatre, opening the performance up to professionals, teachers, and members of the public.
