A  series of twenty-four weekly workshops at Southwark Playhouse for people with mild cognitive impairment or  early symptoms of dementia - referred or self-referring through social prescribing in Southwark.

Working with theatre professionals, participants will explore a range of performance techniques using, Shakespeare amongst them, as well as improvisation and devising, possibly leading to a concluding performance.

No previous experience is needed. This will be an engaging opportunity for those with all experiences and none. The ultimate aim is to provide a space for participants to retain and build their confidence and sense of achievement.

Each workshop will be self-contained, but there will be opportunities to perform throughout the project.
