Playing with Sugar

We involved local people in devising and performing a new show to celebrate 125 years since the Streatham Free Public Library Act 1889. The show was performed to mark the celebrations for the opening of the newly renovated Streatham Tate Library in March 2014. It was inspired by the collected reminiscences of local residents from Streatham and a volunteer research team interviewed residents and collated submissions. The STC artistic team then worked with local people to devise, write and perform the show based on those reminiscences. The show is complemented by this blog, which tell thes story of the project and shares a selection of the memories and extracts from the interviews.
