15 - 18 March 2017, New Diorama Theatre, London
‘Take risk away, and what’s left?’
In a climate that thrives on box-ticking, risk-assessing and safeguarding, we desperately try to create a ‘safe’ environment. But have we stopped listening to the people we're trying to protect?
Safe follows a theatre company as they attempt to stage a play. An interruption by a Health & Safety Officer sets off a spiral into absurdity.
Safe is an exasperatingly funny satire from Eastenders writer Pete Lawson, and performed by the Spare Tyre Artists.
'Safe brings serious concerns to life with an authentic voice.'
- Audience feedback from our 2009 production.
With a diverse cast of older people and people with learning disabilities, Safe is part of Spare Tyre’s 40th birthday celebrations.
