Cardboard Citizens: Who Are Yer?


With over 25 years of experience, Cardboard Citizens produces life-changing theatre that makes a real and positive difference to society. Renowned for their storytelling expertise, Cardboard Citizens encourage communities to come together to raise awareness of, and find solutions to, the challenges we face in our lives.

Age Better in Sheffield is a Big Lottery Funded project, led by South Yorkshire Housing Association, that reduces loneliness and isolation for anyone aged 50 and over.

Together, Cardboard Citizens and Age Better in Sheffield are creating a collaborative performance that has never been seen in Sheffield before!

The entire performance will be created using the voices of older people who have been interviewed by a team of Age Better in Sheffield volunteers. We’ll explore how Sheffield has changed, learn about different neighborhoods and communities, and hear stories about living and growing older in our Steel City.

The play is being performed in Sheffield at Theatre Deli’s brand new venue at 7:30pm on the 26th and 27th of October. An afternoon performance will take place on Thursday 26th at a venue TBC. Ticket prices will be a ‘pay as you feel’ approach and you can reserve a ticket in advance, or buy on the door.

If you’d like to attend one of the showings but don’t have transport, please get in touch with Age Better in Sheffield on 0114 2900 250.
