Razed Roof Lusitania
Arts Company where young people and sixth form students work together with adults with learning disabilities, and some elders from the community.”

“We work towards delivering inclusive Performing Arts practice, and we also do various workshop performances.”

Traditionally, the company works together with sixth form students at Sheredes Secondary School who study Dance and Drama, every Thursday to create an original performance, and bring it to life on stage at the Harlow Playhouse, and at several locations in Essex and Hertfordshire such as schools, theatres and universities, once a year.

For their most recent performance, Razed Roof and Sheredes teamed up with National Theatre playwright Judith Johnson to create an original production called ‘Lusitania: The Floating Palace’, which is based on the true story of a cruise ship which was sunk by a German U-boat 100 years ago.

The play was first performed on the exact date of the attack to remember its 100th anniversary, and garnered high praise from the community.

Annette Lidster also spoke of her vision for the company, “I would like it to be full-time, lots of people are asking us to do things with them but we can’t due to funding and timing restrictions.”

The passion the members of Razed Roof have for the company is evident with their enthusiasm, creativity, and dedication to their work, describing the group as “family” and “a good place to be” with Lucy of Funny Particular adding that they are a “Marvellous group of people who welcome us all.”
