Over 80 people attended the performance of ‘Not in Our Family’, by Little Cat Theatre Group at St Josephs Church Hall in Gateshead.
We were also joined by The Deputy Mayor and Mayoress of Gateshead for the very powerful performance on the subject of Elder Abuse.
The Assembly was awarded funding through The Police and Crime Commissioners for Northumbria, and the production was based around the Police and Crime priority area of ‘Domestic and Sexual Abuse’.
The play was written by Peter Ross after consultation with a group of older people from the Assembly.
The event was also covered by the local TV channel ‘Made in Tyne and Wear’.
