Forward Theatre Project’s CLOTHES SWAP THEATRE PARTY was unveiled in July 2016 and was possibly one of the most exciting nights of my life.

Really, seriously, how very extremely exciting to have been part of a theatre production that was sold and shouted about as ‘a clothes swap party with a theatrical twist’.

The writing is exceptional; the design is beautiful and the actors brilliant.

And the audiences – all over it.

Fantastic response from the local press including a fashion blogger:

Our very own Artistic Director, Charlotte Bennett, on BBC Radio Derby for the 8am prime time slot, no less.

I’m very excited to be booking in the tour for summer 2017.
