BACK THEN

BACK THEN was a delightful project for which we partnered with All Saints College and Amana Living. The year 8 pupils attended reminiscence workshops with the residents at an Amana hostel and then interviewed them about their experiences when young.

Theatre 180 then created a script and rehearsed with the pupils; the performance was greatly enjoyed by the residents and their families. It was a celebration of them, but the bonus for the students was that they learned a great deal about social history in the process, and of the very different conditions and lifestyle their grandparents’ youth.
