General
The production was the result of a year-long collaboration between the Royal Shakespeare Company, Brazil’s Nos do Morro Theatre Company and Birmingham’s arts apprenticeship scheme Gallery 37. Nos do Morro Theatre Company is based in Vidigal, one of the toughest favelas (slums) in Rio de Janeiro where gangs and drugs are prevalent. The Brazilian actor and teacher, Gutti Fraga runs the company. He demands that the young people who enrol leave behind drug gangs and commit to rehearsing and performing plays, which can range from improvised pieces to classics.
History
The production played one performance 27 August 2006 at The Courtyard Theatre as part of the Complete Works Festival.
