‘I feel I have a purpose in life again. I used to spend days at home or in bed, just being about the house. But now I come here I’m getting out for a wee while and it makes me feel good. Before this I was a prisoner in my own home for three and half years’
‘Friday Club lets me use my imagination and gives me choices. This helps me work well with other people and makes me more confident’
The Friday Club made their first film Citizens Ghost, set in and around the atmospheric Citizens Theatre. We explored the idea of who this fantastic building belonged to, our audiences and the people who work here (in Wardrobe, the paint frame, rehearsal rooms etc) or the ghosts who haunt the building. This was another great opportunity to have a lot of fun, create new characters and learn new skills:
‘Filming takes time and repetition - you had to keep calm and carry on! I learnt about having patience, working as part of a team and keeping focussed.’
Watch with the lights on!
We are very grateful for the support from Boshier Hinton to make this film.
