Company of Friends has put on an assortment of performances since its beginnings in 2008: Christmas shows like Peter Pan, Aladdin, The Wizard of Oz, Moby Dick and Dr Who.
We have also produced forum-theatre work based on Alice in Wonderland, directed by John Rand’s daughter, Helena.
We have performed outdoor theatre and dance with students from Edge Hill University and the Liverpool Institute of Performing Arts, worked with Tate Liverpool on an art project.
Students regularly come in and work with the company and, when funding has allowed, we have been able to employ arts workers like puppeteers, photographers, scene painters, singers and choreographers to help enhance the skills of the group.
In 2014 we attended the YAI conference in New York and showed an excerpt from a forum theatre piece to the conference.
In 2015, we took a show called NOTHING TO BE DONE? to the International Beckett Festival in Enniskillen Northern Ireland.
