Each year Stand Easy works with a group of Veterans, 1 actor and 3 student actors, to create a play over a period of 3 weeks. The Veterans are either Wounded or Injured in some way or have mental health challenges such as Post Traumatic Stress.
We choose a subject, we devise the play based on research and, where they choose to do so, their own experiences. We then tour the play. This year we will be working with a Musical Director.
The subject is likely to be isolation - as many of our Veterans come to us having been cut off from families and ordinary life. However, the Veterans themselves will make the final choice of subject matter.
The results are always moving, as what the Veterans lack in performing experience they make up for by being totally committed to saying what they want to say.
Come and see for yourself what they are achieving. The support and interest that you can provide by being in the audience makes a big difference to their lives.
