The Age UK Drama Group, based at Merry Hill, used transcripts of the 25 street interviews conducted in the Brierley Hillness project as inspiration for an original piece of drama – entitled “Brierley Hilliness.”
Written by Fran Cartwright and Carol Duke with support from Mike Tinsley and members of the drama group, “Brierley Hilliness” gives voice to some of the ideas and opinions of the street interviewees through dramatic expression.
Filmed and edited by James Reader.
