A Place of Constant Surprises – The making of a community play

Hannahs at Seale-Hayne, a charity in South Devon, was opened in 2010 as an innovative solution to the lack of appropriate facilities for people with disabilities once they reach adulthood. Working with guests, visitors and staff, a ground-breaking piece of new theatre was created telling the stories of the people at Hannahs at Seale-Hayne. Through creative workshops and one-to-one interviews, a final draft of the play with the working title A Place of Constant Surprises was produced.
