The Mustard Tree Drama Group is based at The Mustard Tree, a centre who supports vulnerable and marginalised adults. The group meet weekly and take part in drama workshops to develop teamwork and theatre skills whilst improving confidence and self esteem. The drama group have been struck by the history of the American Plains Indians. How they were evicted from their homelands and the trauma caused by alcohol and substance misuse. In response to this the drama group have created a piece focusing on the ideas of place, home, belonging and displacement.
'The Lost Salford Sioux' A Poem Monlogue is part 'Hidden Stories', written and performed by Anjum Malik, a multi lingual Poet, scriptwriter for radio, TV, theatre and film, teacher of creative writing and poetry.
Hidden Stories comes straight from the heart of UK cities, ordinary people living unforeseen lives in Rochdale, Salford, Bradford, Birmingham.
After Hours are Manchester Museum’s evening social events where you encounter the unexpected. Artists, scientists, film makers, writers and musicians animate our collections in special one-off performances. Supported by Barefoot Wine www.barefootwine.com
