Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
Gap Yah productions presents E15
by Helen Monks and Matt Woodhead
‘We want social housing, not social cleansing.’ Facing skyrocketing rent and forced relocation, 29 young mothers united to confront Newham Council’s gentrification of their hometown. Two years on, this bold and pertinent piece of theatre examines the Focus E15 movement, Britain's housing crisis and how one group of women refused to be marginalised. Adapted solely from real life testimonies of activists, witnesses and councillors, E15 truthfully addresses the themes of community, strength and solidarity in the face of overwhelming adversity.’
Gap Yah productions is making its performance debut as a brand new theatre company ran purely by performing arts newly graduates. We are a group of young people with a big voice and big ideas which is brought to each performance.
Bringing colour, creativity and shocking statistics, with E15 we aim to make you laugh, cry and leave with the passion to turn protest into power.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for E15 are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
