Using the arts to bring older people together


Derwen recently saw the culmination of an exciting project that interacts with some of our residents to turn their memories into a play. Reality Theatre, a Newport based company which builds plays around social issues and aims to interact with people of all ages have recently been working with Derwen residents who live at Pant y Celyn, Malpas, and Treberth, Newport.


Residents aged between 60 to the age of 99 have been sharing their stories, memories and photographs with actors from the company.The actors created characters and told the resident’s stories in Telling Stories, a play which was performed to a full audience at the Riverfront theatre in Newport.
