The aim of this article is to share the process and outcomes of an intergenerational community theatre project run by London Bubble in 2011.
The article is a narrative describing the process of the project written by the project director followed by an observational evaluation from the Centre for Urban Community Research at Goldsmiths College.
The process of making community drama from gathered oral histories has positive outcomes for elders, children and adults as individuals, and the theatre that results has a wider positive impact on audiences drawn from the immediate community.
This process is unusual, if not unique. The article points the reader towards a fuller evaluation study, and a follow up project.
