Arc Community Players' 2011 production
Arc working with the community this summer
Arc Community Players present My Loose Head by Clifford Oliver, directed by carole Pluckrose
This summer our Community Players presented their fourth production in three years, kicking off with a great performance at the Broadway Theatre in Barking on 18 July. Featuring a cast of 25 local people aged from 17 to 55, the company performed an original piece of work centering on the life of Bella Deller who spent her youth in the shadows. Despite never managing to win the heart of local rugby star, Jason Leonard, she did go on to win an MBE and was finally able to shine in the eyes of everyone who knew her. My Loose Head is a touching and inspirational story of aspiration and will to achieve - a story for anyone looking to turn their life around.
