New podcast series, written and performed by the people of Doncaster

Stories To Get Us Through

We’re excited to launch a new podcast series written and performed by the people of Doncaster, inspired by real life events and created during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Stories To Get Us Through features a collection of personal anecdotes, snapshot memories and poetry, exploring different themes including imagination, change, fear, friendship and heroes.

This community performance project was created through our Public Acts programme, in partnership with Cast in Doncaster, with support from Right Up Our Street, and our parner organisations across Doncaster: B.Friend, Conversation Club, Edlington Community Organisation, LGBTQ Youth, Cast Youth Theatre and darts. They worked together to develop their stories remotely, on Zoom, over the phone and through postal packs with creative writing activities, and recorded the stories safely at home with professional audio recording equipment.

Listen to the stories now on Cast's website, or by searching 'Stories To Get Us Through' wherever you get your podcasts.
