Last Friday, members of 'Stepladder', BDP's drama group, were on stage at Bristol Old Vic as part of a performance looking at the issue of homelessness in our city.

Stepladder members took part in a 2 week residency at Bristol Vic hosted by theatre company Cardboard Citizens who have been working with local people with experience of homelessness as part of their latest project Get Involved, Change the Outcome.

Using 'Theatre of the Oppressed techniques', Cardboard Citizens created a thought-provoking exploration of the causes that lie behind this deeply important issue. The performance was a creative catalyst for an interactive debate and panel discussion, asking all of us what we could do differently to challenge homelessness? What systems and policies needed to change to help people in Bristol?
