and NHS Trusts.
Cascade can also provide Reminiscence Training, enabling staff members to deliver the
benefits of reminiscence to clients and patients.
Gain a fresh perspective
Provocative and interactive, Cascade performances are intense examinations of the burning
issues that affect us all.
Our plays always provide the perfect forum for discovery and debate. The audience is gently
encouraged to interact with the characters to understand and challenge their actions and to
suggest new, better ways to resolve their issues.
Cascade’s performances are an inspiring way for Social Services and Health Departments,
Charity Groups, Schools or any other organisation examine the challenges that affect them.
Moving and interactive, our plays engage the audience in an intense, emotional experience
that allows them to explore their own thoughts and feelings about the topic in a supportive
Finding the path to positive outcomes through collective contribution is central to
Cascade’s performances. This results in audiences looking at issues with a fresh perspective
and renewed optimism.
Cascade can be commissioned to develop, write and perform plays on any topic that your
organisation wishes to cover.
When an interactive play is not possible, a Cascade film can be a thought-provoking
way to open a topic to debate in an exceptionally cost-effective manner.
Our films provide businesses, care workers, health care professionals and all kinds of
organisations with valuable resources in tackling issues that lie at the heart of their work.

People who participate in Cascade workshops say some great things about us.
‘After a half-day workshop with Cascade, I definitely work in a different, better way. We did
all kinds of exercises that were about learning to communicate well with colleagues, team
building and conflict management; we all came away armed with some great techniques
that really do make a difference. That was a couple of months ago, and people in the office
are still talking about it now, they had such a good time.’
