About the Show
What would you say if everyone was listening?
Congress is a citizens’ assembly made especially for the people of Wyndham; a platform to celebrate diverse voices, our local community whilst championing our collective right to been seen
Congress is more than a performance, it’s a collective of personal visions, public declarations, shared experiences and communities’ concerns.
Created by All The Queens Men, Congress connects eight diverse local citizens with eight professional wordsmiths. Together they collaborate to create a series of ‘first speeches” written just for this
place and shared once, just for this time.
These wordsmiths and speakers have been curated across a spectrum of diversities to present a representative slice of the people of Wyndham then, now and into our future.
This emboldened creative action encourages citizens to participate, to agitate, inspire change and transformation.
Come and listen to your community in a celebration of people power; a unique theatrical experience outside of the theatre.
