Cardboard Citizens

Cardboard Citizens

Cardboard Citizens is the UK's only homeless people's professional theatre company and the leading practitioner of Forum Theatre in the UK. They work with people who have experience of, or who are at risk of, becoming homeless.

Cardboard Citizens was founded in 1991 by Adrian Jackson, as a London Bubble project. For the first four years it toured Forum Theatre by homeless people to other homeless people, up and down the country, in hostels, day centres, arches, the street, conferences - you name it.

After Cardboard Citizens became an independent entity in 1995, the company broadened out into schools touring, as well as regular workshops, theatre visits, and large-scale site-specific collaborations. It is now a recognised contributor to the London theatre scene, providing opportunities for cultural explorations of all sorts to homeless people (ie. ex-city workers) - all without compromising its integrity and its allegiance to the oppressed.
