"We’re the kind of place where people’s stories don’t normally get shared
Because we’re just ‘ordinary folk’ from Tameside, just our ‘little’ borough over there."
Inspired by interviews carried out with members of the Tameside community, NO SUCH THING AS ORDINARY is a snapshot into the stories and lives of people in Tameside. In a collage of first-hand accounts, we follow 6 characters as they explore their relationship with the borough's history, community and their own memories of the place they call home and ask us to consider if there is such a thing as ordinary?
Tameside Creative Community (CIC) is made up of local Tameside residents brought together as Ambassadors for the Royal Exchange Theatre’s Local Exchange programme. They worked with the Royal Exchange Theatre to bring The Den to Stalybridge in August 2019, creating a programme of activity for a two-week pop-up theatre festival. They are now working together as company, aiming to continue giving a platform for local voices and celebrating Tameside.
