The Misfits is run by adults with learning difficulties. We make original theatre that is sometimes just for fun, often to tell the stories of our lives and what it is like to live with a learning difficulty. We lead equality training using theatre.
This is a very exciting time for The Misfits.
We’ve been a Community Interest Company for just over a year now and are building a very good reputation for our training events with a difference. Our regular clients include Bristol NHS Services and Bristol City Council. We use theatre to train professionals how to work with people with learning difficulties and tackle difficult issues such as domestic abuse and relationships and sexual health.
We continue to offer lots of exciting opportunities for adults with learning difficulties in theatre and other creative arts.
Over the next three years you will see more regular drama workshops, nightclub events at the Trinity Centre and work with schools and organisations across Bristol thanks to a grant of £149,659 from the Big Lottery Fund.
In the autumn we’ll be starting on a new creative development project to enable us to explore other artforms thanks to a grant of £39,512 from Arts Council England.
