Making Theatre from Memories: Methodology

Every show reflected in the Reminiscence Theatre Archive is different in style and feel, and the writers have developed their own distinctive approaches. However, there are certain key elements to making theatre from memories.

Here we offer a short 10-Step guide based on what we have found effective, illustrated with material from the Reminiscence Archive. We also include a Channel 4 documentary by Television History Workshop from 1986, which demonstrates the process from beginning to end of how a reminiscence theatre piece is made.
