The Plow Prism group is writing a new play together
Plow Prism is a group for adults with care support needs who meet every Tuesday at The Plow Arts Center to enjoy drama and dance.
Together they wrote a new play, The Prisoner. The play is set in 1798, where nothing but misery hangs in the musty air of Bodmin Prison; a place where the poor are sent and forgotten.
The actors created characters that include accused witches, smugglers and pirates working their way through the cruel system.
Rehearsals are going well and the actors are thoroughly enjoying the process. Plow Prism Facilitator and Show Director Danielle Flowers said: “What a privilege to work alongside such a great group of adults! It’s been amazing to see them grow, improve and develop their confidence and skills. The Prisoner of Bodmin is their next show and their own creation: we were able to write it from their own, original ideas.
“The group was heavily involved in everything from direction and choreography to lighting and technical decisions. This will truly be a reflection of their amazing range of personalities!”
The Prisoner is being played on Tuesday, March 21 at 11 a.m.
