Kay Hepplewhite, community theatre lecturer, is leading the project, and says:

"We could actually see the creases where the actor had folded the vellum and parchment to fit it in their pocket, probably during rehearsals. We are making a facsimile for the public to actually hold during the performance. If they go to the City Archive they can see the original".
Kay is creating 'The Archivists Play' with students, a 20 minute guided experience in the library Marriott Room and archive basement.

Under the direction of Kay Hepplewhite, former Research Associate at the University's Centre for Public Policy (CPP), the applied drama techniques made use of Augusto Boal's Forum Theatre approaches to explore issues relating to trade unions, employment, and young people's aspirations. The group of students researched and devised a performance to open the event. They also facilitated workshops, which used participatory approaches to theatre to find practical solutions to young people's experience of exploitation and injustice.

Kay Hepplewhite said 'The project has arisen from a successful collaboration within the University between the CPP and the Performing Arts Department to develop research initiatives around Social Theatre applications.
