There's nothing like some BIG, national press coverage to kick-start our week!

Cardboard Citizens' upcoming showcases of Glasshouse, our fundraising gala and our new home were all featured in a double-spread piece in the Independent on Sunday last weekend.

The article features exclusive interviews with Ambassador Kate Winslet, writer Kate Tempest, company Member Jo Allitt and Artistic Director Adrian Jackson: "It started as an experiment: to see if theatre could spark debate among those living on the fringes of society. Two decades later, the UK's only homeless people's professional theatre company is hot property. One of the UK's leading Hollywood stars backs it. One of Britain's best young poets writes for it, and its shows are being performed at some of the hottest theatres in the capital."
