Our Will


Our Will poster imageWill is a young man with a learning disability whose mother has just died.

His brother and sister can't agree on who is going to look after him.

It's a difficult situation but nobody has thought to ask Will's opinion on the matter.

Can Will's voice be heard over the arguments being waged by his well-meaning brother

and sister? What would his mother have wanted? His father? What about his friends?

Most importantly what does Will want?

OUR WILL is a piece of Forum Theatre about the issues surrounding independence for

people with intellectual disabilities.

Forum Theatre is a style of theatre pioneered by Augusto Boal in Brazil in which drama is

used to help solve social and political problems faced by ordinary people in difficult

circumstances. It has been called Theatre of the Oppressed - oppression taking many

different - and sometimes unrecognised - forms.

Company of Friends have been working with writer and director Helena Kane and making sure their voices are heard and their experiences highlighted. A short film of the rehearsal process will be shown after each performance and on the last day (October 22nd) there will be a chance to take part in a discussion about the play.
