Educational plays

Our specially commissioned plays featuring themes around palliative and end of life care are ideal training resources for nurses, social workers, care and medical staff and university students.

Available as live performances or as videos, the plays tell the personal stories of individuals and their families, and the issues they had to deal with in accessing care and support.

The plays come with in-depth training resources, and all live performances can be accompanied by a facilitated post-performance workshop and discussion.

The plays do not require a dedicated performance space and can be performed in any sized space.
