This exciting new project is tailored to looked after young people and Stone Soup are really proud to be working on this exciting new project. 


Act Out @ The Octagon Reveal Season 

After their successful debut show at the Octagon Theatre's inaugural 'Reveal' season back in June, 'Act Out' are pleased to be returning to the second Octagon Theatre 'Reveal' festival taking place in March, with a new devised piece centred around the idea "finding our story" - how we use narrative and story to make sense of the world around us. 




Following on from their exceptional piece of theatre raising awareness for domestic violence and the issues surrounding it, Melodramatics will be developing a new piece of work centred around mental health awareness. 


Future Theatres 

Continuing our great work with digital and online drama, Stone Soup will be working alongside our partners Future Theatre to create a series of online monologues. Don't forget to check out the website and our social media channels when we broadcast these new pieces in May. 


We're also proud to be working bringing new arts and education work to St John's, Millbrook and Stalyhill schools.
