Writer : a collective of Boston voices
Director : Jayne Williams

Our Boston Stories journey continues...Over the past 6 weeks we have been gathering stories, drawings, raps, songs, poems and artistic creations, visiting local schools and involving local groups - encouraging everyone living in and nearby the town to share what Boston means to you!

A sharing took place at Blackfriars Arts Centre on Sunday 24 June to discover what young Bostonians have to say, as they take to the stage at a fun arts event for all the family. The evening continued with a performance of A Fortunate Man.

BOSTON STORIES - THE BEGINNING
Seeking out, capturing, documenting and sharing stories from the heart of the community

In June 2017, 18 guests were invited to share a communal Goan meal in the heart of Boston. A mosaic of cultures, backgrounds, ethnicities and political ideologies came together as we began a journey to reveal what makes a Bostonian today.
In a collaboration with award winning theatre and film Director/Producer/Writer Alan Lyddiard, New Perspectives' ambitious new creative project sets out to be all embracing, growing from an intimate meal to a large-scale live performance in November 2019.
