You, Me, The World and Hackney Wick

01 October — 31 December

Hackney Wick is changing… let’s talk.

From October to December 2017, The Yard Theatre has joined forces with take stock exchange to bring people together through storytelling. Working over several months, we will meet various groups from all different walks of life, united by their connections to the Wick. Working with a huge variety of different people, we’ll share thoughts, have conversations and collect stories. Once we’ve built up an inventory of stories, we’ll go back to all the groups we visited and explore new stories from other groups.

This may see us swap the stories of the construction workers in Griddlers Cafe with the stories of 4 year olds, or tales from the boating community with the local Bingo group. Who knows, but we’re excited to find out.

Come and see the free performance on January 13th, with a free community meal beforehand.
