A Forum Theatre play written by Femi Keeling, touring London hostels and prisons in autumn 2018.
Rising is the story of Terrence, who has just been released after a short prison sentence – he’s full of hope, but faced with battles against the system and demons from his past, he’s on the edge. He’s moving on, but is he moving in the right direction?
This is not theatre as you know it. Forum Theatre invites YOU to stop the action and change the outcome. Come watch to find out how.
For over 26 years, Cardboard Citizens has been making theatre which illuminates homelessness and the lives of homeless people, revealing truth and sometimes beauty. Our shows reach thousands of homeless and vulnerable people in hostels, theatres and prisons across the UK every year.
