Keep Holding My Hand is an original play devised by people with and without mental health challenges who take part in Acting Now’s project Making Changes. Using theatre to reflect, explore and analyse the issues that affect them, Acting Now´s Artistic Director Marina Pallares-Elias has worked with the group to develop a collaborative script inspired by their own stories.
The play explores how positive experiences can be derived even from negative episodes, how lifelong friendship can counter hopelessness, and how it is essential that we join together to enable the voices of the vulnerable to be heard.
Acting Now is a Cambridge-based theatre company whose vision is to transform lives through theatre. More information can be found here.
