FORGOTTEN KEY WORKERS (2021)
For many, the world seemed to stop in March 2020 and they had to stay at home. Others were forced to risk their health and continue to work. This is the story of those who kept the world turning but didn’t get a clap.
Following their sold-out show Constructed, Lightpost Theatre Company have spoken to the forgotten key workers to investigate how different groups were affected by the Covid crisis and what needs to change. Overworked shop assistants, delivery drivers on a deadline, taxi drivers in a tight spot, vets continuing to save lives…uncover the hidden stories of people navigating their way through the pandemic.
Forgotten Key Workers is part of BEDLAM Arts & Mental Health Festival 2021.
