Video: National Tackling Drugs Week - County Showcase Lancashire, Part 2, Paul’s Story

Friday, June 19th, 2009

There was a sting in the tale for the delegates at the Lancashire show case event. As Tom Woodcock began to deliver his final presentation about statistics a commotion broke out at the back of the room.

Heads turned and Paul Ward was shouting, “What about the people behind the statistics.” As Mark Gilman said what followed was “one of the most amazing pieces of recovery oriented theatre I’ve seen.”

Paul had been working with Motionloco, a group of graduate actors who, with directors Terence Mann and Helen Tolson, produced a piece of story telling that is both personal and emotionally charged. Paul’s Story really does highlight the people behind the statistics.
