Our Youth Theatre have been working on a spoken word project during the lockdown period. These three short films were entirely devised, written and performed by a group of Stratford East Youth Theatre members and are based on interviews with key workers during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Our Youth Theatre work is supported by Garfield Weston Foundation and The Boris Karloff Charitable Foundation
