21st May 2024 to 23rd May 2024

The neighbourhood is changing and the residents are beginning to feel unease. Tensions rise, curtains twitch, and crime feels inescapable.

Each resident’s background has an impact on their own view of things: one tries to approach with compassion, one gives the benefit of the doubt, whilst another chooses to fight back. How can one street with such a diversity of opinion come together to resolve the problem?

On 21st and 23rd May 2024, Audiences joined Cornerstone Theatre Group as they took a stand against crime and suggested ways we can work towards a safer, more united community.

This was a thoughtful and heart-warming crime-fiction play about a single street in Bristol.

The five panellists for the Q&A. Showing Oliver Jones (acta Director), Cat Papastavrou Brooks, Councillor Emily Clarke, Councillor Ellie Freeman, and Devon Lowndes (cast member and founder and director of Self Agency)

The performance on 21st May was followed by a Question and Answer session discussing neighbourhood crime. We were joined by:

Cat Papastavrou Brooks
