Welcome to Théâtre Sans Frontières - creating an international theatre of excellence that celebrates world languages and cultures

31st OCTOBER 2023
Make Do and Mend in Amsterdam
In association with Théâtre Sans Frontières , Queen's Hall Arts and Northumberland Libraries. 

Touching and joyful stories of everyday life in the 1950s, told through drama, live music and songs.

The Make Do and Mend team have just returned from Amsterdam, after a lively, inspiring time being hosted by our sister Adult Drama Group led by Loes Hegger. We reunited the two theatre groups, seen here in Amsterdam Central Station. The Hexham group stayed with different Dutch hosts, they participated in a joint workshop led by Loes Hegger and also had an animated walking tour of central Amsterdam and a guided visit to the Archives and Colonial Museum. The whole trip was very successful, as well as
 challenging. The play performed to a full audience of over 80 in the lovely Plein Theatre.  This was  a joyful reuniting of two drama groups who first worked together on zoom in lockdown. The Amsterdam group were invited to perform last year in Hexham at Queen's Hall and TSF's Adult Drama Group have now reciprocated the experience in Amsterdam.

Comments from audiences:
Really wonderful and moving. Thank you.
Lovely concept, well written and acted out. Really engaged with audience.
Excellent show and performance. Thought provoking, emotional and heartfelt. Thank you!

Comments from the group:

I very much enjoyed the Amsterdam tour. The workshop we did collaboratively with the Dutch group was timely and I think helped the performance and overall the experience was fun and enriching.

Personally this international experience of staging a drama performance has really challenged me but has given me an increased self belief and confidence in what I can achieve with a supportive team of friends and colleagues both in Hexham and in Amsterdam. A unique experience not to be forgotten.
