FILM SHIZZLE
THEATRE SHIZZLE
COMMUNITY SHIZZLE
The films we make very much reflect our personalities as we are, essentially, our own target audience. With each film we produce, we constantly aim to create a distinctly unique feel that people will hopefully come to associate our work with. Our slate includes the feature films How Not To Work & Claim Benefits (Released Internationally, 2017) and The Unprofessional (in development), the documentary How to Make a Film for Nothing and the short films The Commission, Acting Grown Up (completed) and Zero Hour Contract (in development). It also includes numerous community-based projects and comedy shorts.Rotten Park Road is a non-profit organisation with a focus on new writing. Our work ranges from the dark and hard-hitting through to the sadistically comic. Our first theatre production, A Story for When Were Grandads, won the Best New Writing award at Buxton Fringe Festival and was nominated for Best Production. It has now been adapted into a successful film entitled How Not To Work and Claim Benefits. Our theatre repertoire includes the full length stage plays A Story for when we're Grandads, Playtime for the Suicidal and Don't Blink, Don't Breathe and the character/sketch comedy show Operation Perfect Teaset .We work to create new work for new audiences. Since 2007 we have been dedicated to new theatre-making and, in more recent years, film, using creativity as a means to raise awareness of mental health issues and to improve participants' wellbeing. The catalyst for the professional work we produce is often the issues and ideas which are brought up by the people from our local community. Rotten Park Road's creative practitioners each have over fifteen years' experience delivering community-led projects and we guarantee the highest quality of work.
