Congratulations to all those who participated in Tony Barry’s brainchild of theatre for social change at The Drill Hall last weekend. It was fantastic to meet so many lovely people willing to put their many and varied talents towards creating theatre with a message, to be uploaded onto social media.
Thanks to Tony for organizing and running this social experiment. I felt honoured to be part of such a vibrant, caring, creative project. It was empowering to actively do something to expose some of the ills of our society, rather than just sit around whingeing about it.
Perhaps the people will teach the leaders, who are obsessed with profit and maintaining the old ways (eg fossil fuels), that health, clean air and water and cohesive communities are true indicators of a society’s wealth, not just for these generations, but for also for those who come after us.
