Why not buy a ticket for a show you will never see?

Pay us what you would for a theatre ticket £5? £20? £45? and for eight weeks 20 young people in Gaza, deaf and hearing working together, will have a drama experience of a lifetime!

We need to raise £12,000 by finding 480 people who are willing to payon average £25 towards our GAZA:OPENING SIGNS project

The GAZA OPENING SIGNS project is a programme of training and drama workshops for deaf and hearing children in Gaza run by Theatre for Everybody. They are training in signing and will train a deaf drama workshop facilitator especially for this work. The workshop programme will start in September 2012


The GAZA BREATHING SPACE project created a programme of drama sessions working with the young people who have been most disturbed by the impact of organised armed conflict.  This work takes place at the Rehabilitation Centres in Deir Al Balah and Jabalya refugee camps.

THE GAZA BREATHING SPACE FILM is a record of this work and the personal and professional journey undertaken by Az Director, Jonathan Chadwick, to Gaza in November 2011 to meet and talk to participants, families and workers involved. See here for details
