We still standing – people with learning disabilities
We Still Standing is an original play devised by students from local charity Rowan, and directed by Acting Now director Marina Pallarés-Elias. After six months of busy weekly sessions, this drama group has created a beautiful performance regarding the subjects of challenging situations, love, relationships, fear and hope.
ROWAN is a local charity and arts centre that helps improving the lives of people with learning disabilities through the provision of services and meaningful activities that improve health and wellbeing, as well as break down issues of social exclusion. They run a number of art studios one of them being dedicated for their drama group which is where all the magic happens.
