Saturday Citizens: Thanks for Nothing

Citizens Theatre Saturday Citizens presents Thanks for Nothing by The PappyShow as part of Positive Stories for Negative Times: Season 2 by Wonder Fools in association with Traverse Theatre.

The Saturday Citizens, our drama group for learning disabled young performers 14-18 years old, have been creating a short film as part of Wonder Fools, Positive Stories for Negative Times.

Since September 2021, the group have been working with filmmaker Kiana Kalantar-Hormozi, using Thanks for Nothing by The PappyShow with Lewis Hetherington as the basis for their film. Thanks for Nothing explores what it means to be thankful in this world we live in today. It’s a mix of games, challenges and exercises allowing the group to tell their own stories, in their own way.

Activities have included participants writing thank you letters to each other and a celebratory movement piece as they came together in person again in March 2022 for the first time in 2 years, outdoors at Glasgow Green.

The final film premiers on 17 August at 7pm: Positive Stories for Negative Times.
