Across South Shields and Sunderland there are thousands of people who have stopped playing. There are guitars propped up in bedrooms that haven’t been strummed in years. Trumpets got packed away after the colliery band played its last gig. Drum kits taking up too much space in garages.

Unfolding Theatre was a Research and Development project for Autumn 2014. Creating a large scale music theatre event that explored why we stop playing, and what it might take to get us started again. Annie and the team have plans to keep the band playing, so keep your eyes peeled for future updates. Want to be involved? Get in touch.
