On Saturday the 24th of May I went to ChickenShed Theatre, together with some fellow artists from the North London Artist Network. Chicken Shed is an inclusive theatre company, with a permanent base on Cat Hill, near Cockfosters. Their website says this:
“Our vision is a society that enables everyone to flourish and our mission is to create entertaining and outstanding theatre that celebrates diversity and inspires positive change.
Where difference can divide, at Chickenshed the difference makes the art.
Chickenshed is an inclusive theatre company that first began in 1974. Primarily based at our own purpose-built venue in North London, we create theatre for all ages and run successful outreach projects, education courses and membership programmes throughout the year. Read more about our aims.”
You can find out more here, but it is a fantastic place with a great vibe.
The sketches are all, of necessity, done quickly, but it is a wonderful experience; seeing the show, trying to catch the moment, sketching away in the corner. We all enjoyed it and we will be doing it again!
