Post War Potteries

As part of our research for our next play, DIRTY LAUNDRY, we held three community events to talk to local people about their memories of Stoke-on-Trent in the 50s and 60s.

We had three terrific meetings (with tea and cake, of course) at Gladstone Pottery Museum, The Potteries Museum and Art Gallery, and Middleport Pottery.



Thanks to everyone who came along to share their memories, and all who got in touch with us online and sent letters and emails with their memories and experiences.

This work was very important to get the detail and context of the play as accurate as possible.



Creative writing workshops for Staffordshire Live Age Festival 2016. WRITING IN THE DUST focused on stories of industrial illness and pollution in Stoke and North Staffordshire.


In keeping with our commitment to work in heritage buildings and non-theatre spaces, these workshops took place at the historic Bethesda Chapel in Hanley.

The themes of this workshop are part of ongoing research for our next project, DIRTY LAUNDRY.
