Theatre Project

Over two years in 2005 and 2006, young people in Plymouth and Sekondi-Takoradi joined together to create exciting and inspiring theatre that was performed in both Ghana and in Plymouth's Theatre Royal.

In 2005 a creative exchange of 24 young people, twelve from Plymouth and twelve from Sekondi-Takoradi, performed 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' in the Drum Theatre.  A year later, another two groups created 'The Marriage of Anansewa', a traditional Ghanaian play, which was again performed at the Theatre Royal's Drum Theatre to sell out audiences.

Some young people involved in this project have now gone on to take part in a new project, again working across the two countries, to develop a TV programme for local digital TV- Chew TV.
