The Destitution Project were proud to host a production of "On Songbird's Wings."The play was performed by the Octagon Academy, who also wrote the script.
It was presented at our Drop-In. This entailed much preparation by D.P. and especially the Octagon. On the day of the performance we were in at 8.00 am helping to unload and place the set.
At 11.30am the cast arrived and prepared in the dressing rooms we'd made available.
In the meantime during the morning D.P. life continued as normal as Triage, Caseworker, Clothes Room, Reception, Food Room went about their business, and of course, Table Tennis, Football and Pool Tables and tea and coffee machines continued in use. At 12.15 our volunteers cleared the hall area and made everything ready for the performance to commence at 12.30 am.
It was a wonderful performance, with great credit due to the actors and all at the Octagon Academy. We had an audience of over 90 and after helping clear the set we all sat down to a marvellous hot cooked meal prepared by Alan and his team.
