Part of our All We Can Do programme
For many years we have worked in close partnership with Women’s Services, Tomorrow’s Women a multi-agency Community Justice Centre in the Gorbals which supports women who are at high risk of re-offending and who have multiple needs.
We offer a creative programme across the year with participants and staff members investigating specific themes such as the criminal justice system, routes to positive change and relationships. The women take part in artistic workshops, including creative writing, drama and costume making sessions, leading up to a sharing of work.
A recent highlight was working with playwright Linda Duncan McLaughlin on a series of workshops that explored playwriting, creating a character, and developing plotlines. The group devised their own scenes, framed within a criminal justice context. They then got to perform their scripts to an invited audience alongside professional actors Maureen Carr, Yana Harris and Eimi Quin.
The women are also invited to Citizens Theatre productions and have seen many shows over the years. We look forward to welcoming our All We Can Participants into the newly redeveloped theatre to experience more live performances.
The Citizens Theatre has a long history of working with women’s groups in the community. Find out about other Projects for Women.
