As a working professional in Theatre I've frequently come across assumptions that Community work is somehow lesser than the “High Art” of Professionals putting plays on stages. Indeed, there's even talk of some organisations using “Community Engagement” just as a…See More

Hi Ben - you are the second person to message me that in 10 minutes - I have sent a test email to our account and so far, it has neither arrived, nor bounced back! Can I check that it was info@dirtyprotesttheatre.co.uk you emailed? Sometimes people miss off the 2t's? Otherwise, send me your message to my personal address catherinepaskell (at) gmail (dot) com and at least I'll have it x
