Glasshouse: Cardboard Citizens Theatre Company, Kate Tempest
"'So here we are, today, a day when everything comes to a head.
All I wanted was to change my life, but life changed me instead.'
Glasshouse is a story about family and how hard it can be to keep loving. Three short stories take you into the minds of three members of the same family – fragile as any of us, people who've given up on their dreams. They fail to stay together and struggle to survive apart. Framed by Kate Tempest's haunting poetry, the plays draws us into a dark and gritty London illuminated by moments of unexpected tenderness.
This is not theatre as you know it. Forum Theatre invites the audience to stop the action in the second part of the evening and come on stage and rehearse alternative scenarios to lead to positive changes.
'Cardboard Citizens is a theatre company that must surely rank as being amongst the most genuinely life-changing in the UK' (What's On Stage)."

Cardboard Citizens has been making life-changing theatre with homeless and marginalised people for over twenty years.
