The Austerity Project is a performance by final year students of Northumbria University’s BA Hons Drama programme who are concentrating on applied theatre or scriptwriting.
The students have conducted interviews seeking to discover the impact of austerity policies. The performance has involved close collaboration with three regional organisations (Gateshead Carers; Recoco Recovery College and Disability North) and is based on the testimonies of people who work with and use their services. The performance will represent the voices of those involved and will last approximately 40 minutes. It will be followed by a post-show discussion.
