We believe in theatre as a means of self expression, TWS focus is on its energy in Edinburgh and the Lothians. Use innovative, vernacular drama to bring communities together. Involve a community mix – that might be with a geographically located community (e.g. Morningside and Oxgangs) or a community of people interested in a subject or story Continue the TWS tradition of breaking down social barriers through exploration of stories via theatre. Projects must be driven by professionals who understand the issues and stories important to the community. TWS must in partnership with both community and special interest groups and, where appropriate, other arts organisations
