(1989 - 1996)
The Hawley Hostel Drama Group were a great bunch of adults with learning difficulties who would meet weekly in their Barnstaple Hostel to use drama to do a whole variety of things. The group fed into a number of performances over the year, working in particular with a local youth theatre. They also produced street theatre, produced a limited edition hand made book written & photographed by the group on the life of Monet, & sometimes simply used theatre to explore the everyday tensions & problems in their lives.
(South Molton North Devon, 1995)
a twelve week series of sessions working with a youth group to create a drugs education video for the Youth Service & Health Education Authority. Using drama, the group explored the pluses & minuses of drug use & abuse (both illegal & legal substances), in order to take the informed debate that they had as part of this project on to a wider youth audience as part of a peer education programme.
“Wolf + Water developed a trusting relationship with the young people…the comments & the enthusiasm showed that the group loved the project”
