Playing With Food




In June 2012, A Moment’s Peace and Platform co-produced this piece of new site-specific theatre.


“You are invited to join us for a cup of tea, a biscuit and a story - but will it all end up getting a bit messy?!”


Transforming the community hall at Cranhill Development Trust into a cosy living room space, the participants of this year-long project shared their stories and memories of food, asking how an ever-changing community relates to the old and the new.
