Welcoming AZ2B Theatre Company to The Poly for this wonderful, yet thought provoking show suitable for all.
What do you see? is a story about positive transformation. Through good leadership and a desire to make a difference, Joan Marshall’s Care Home is changed from a place “you wouldn’t put your dog in” to a place you would happily be a resident yourself!
Change doesn’t come easy, mistakes are made along the way, but with determination, humour and staff who get on board (however reluctantly) change can happen – even at Joan Marshall’s! Through story, mask & puppetry, Az2B take you on a journey of change, hope and possibilities.
You would not want to be a resident at Marshall Joan’s Care Home. De-motivated staff, no stimulation and a culture that lacks care. Fortunately they’ve just failed their CQC inspection leading to a change in ownership, are things about to change? Let’s hope so!
