Looking Down On Me funding secured

Updated: Jun 23

It’s been an interesting year to say the least. We were absolutely over the moon to receive the government’s #CultureRecoveryFund back in April and since then we have been working tirelessly behind the scenes to bring Unexpected Places and our youth theatre Light UP back to centre stage.

With this in mind, we have some wonderful news to share with you all; we’re reproducing our show Looking Down On Me as a film resource for schools and charities.

If you’ve been following us for a while, you’ll remember we toured Looking Down On Me to schools, community groups and the Edinburgh Fringe back in 2019.

Looking Down On Me is an enchanting and uplifting show designed to help children and young people understand some of the emotions and experiences that might follow the death of a loved one. Created in partnership with the bereavement charity Simon Says, this unique story was written and produced by Artistic Director Rosanna Sloan, drawing from her own experience and the knowledge of professionals from bereavement charities.

Our motto is creating stories in Unexpected Places, and with Looking Down On Me the unexpected loss of a relative leaves our main character, Annie, bereft. Both relatable and heart-warming, Looking Down On Me explores identifying difficult feelings, misconceptions about death and how these experiences might affect us in the future.
