The Morning After Theatre Company is looking for passionate and experienced drama practitioners to help facilitate weekly theatre workshops with the view to create a performance piece. 
 
Since it's inception, the company has been delivering weekly workshops for people with experiences of multiple disadvantages. The Morning After Theatre Company offers a safe, fun and expressive space for attendees to access support and learn new skills, build their confidence, and develop tools to support wellbeing through the art of theatre 
 
Participating in the Arts is widely recognised to help people in recovery express their emotions, improve their self-esteem, relieve stress, and to process trauma and most importantly to feel empowered and connected. Our aim is to reach people who have been marginalised from mainstream society due to substance misuse and associated lifestyles, by providing a specifically focussed, accessible and non-judgmental opportunity to engage in our community of people with similar experiences, we hope to bring this group gently out from the shadows into 'The Morning After'.

- Attend pre-briefs and debriefs of each session, and receive and provide constructive feedback. 
 
- Create a warm, inclusive and friendly environment for attendees 
 
 
 
We also welcome volunteers with theatre related experience such as costume making, set design etc.
