Help Yourself I Foolproof Theatre I Theatre

Take a sideways look at injustice, through comedy, drama and anarchic fun. Devised from real-life stories, this show asks why human trafficking, land grabbing and poverty exist, and ponders whether there’s anything we can do to help ourselves.

This production looks at empowerment through a number of stories, real and imagined, from Zambia, India and the UK. Help Yourself informs and provokes the audience through playful humour and direct storytelling, leaving scope for further discussion and action. Under the direction of Fiona Stewart, Foolproof’s creative director, and devised by the cast, this is an updated version of the highly successful 2014 production. Through comedy, direct address and anarchic fun the show asks whether we can help ourselves when it comes to helping others. Take a sideways look at injustice, and come prepared to laugh and think.
