A Cardboard Citizens play by Femi Keeling. Directed by Stuart Mullins.

  • The Studio - From our friends

Rising is the story of Terrence, who has just been released after a short prison sentence – he’s full of hope, but faced with battles against the system and demons from his past, he’s on the edge. He’s moving on, but is he moving in the right direction?

This Forum Theatre production empowers the audience to change the outcome – every show is a unique experience. After watching the play, you’ll have the chance to voice your opinion and offer ideas that might change the course of the characters’ lives. Or, if you choose, just sit back and watch as the story is rewritten in front of your eyes.

For the past 26 years, Cardboard Citizens has been making theatre which illuminates homelessness and the lives of homeless people, revealing truth and sometimes beauty. The shows reach thousands of homeless and vulnerable people in hostels, theatres and prisons across the UK every year.

RISING is part of the With One Voice International Arts and Homelessness Summit & Festival running 12 to 18 November across Greater Manchester. More information and full Summit & Festival programmes.
