Writer : a collective of Mansfield voices
Director : Jayne Williams

Through a series of weekly meetings, over countless cups of tea and slice of cake stories emerge as devisor/director Jayne Williams creates a unique live performance piece about Mansfield today.
Mansfield Musings is shaped by the people, the places, thoughts, memories and stories of local members of the community - people living or working in Mansfield, people who have something to say.

New Perspectives is delighted to be one of four partners nationally to take part in Headlong Futures, a new collaboration focusing on gathering stories in specific communities. Over an 18 month period, together we will share conversations through theatre exploring what makes a place home.
We invite you to join our first #Mansfield sharing event at Mansfield Library on Saturday 30 September at 2pm. Tickets cost £3 and can be booked online here
