Waterloo Festival - Mental Health Matters: Poetic Unity & Waterloo Community Theatre
An evening of spoken-word performance and youth theatre, bringing together fresh talent from in and around Lambeth, to explore mental health issues.
Poetic Unity offers an intimate performance of original poetry and spoken word by the local young people who took part in the workshops on 11th & 15th June.
From Waterloo Community Theatre comes ‘There are Lots of Rooms Inside My Head’, a 30-minute drama created and performed by 12-15 year olds. It explores mental health, especially what we choose to share with others and what we keep to ourselves.
