The Background

No Fixed Abode is a venture between The Core at the Corby Cube, and the internationally-respected London theatre company Cardboard Citizens and Housing Options, Corby Borough Council.

The initial idea (sparked admirably by the Housing team at the council) was developed further, after consultation with The Core, from a play about those on the margins of society to a production acted by them. 

Cardboard Citizens, as the leading proponent of Forum Theatre, (which is the basis of No Fixed Abode’s ‘interactive’ structure) was brought in to direct and lead the project.

Various service providers were then asked to identify people who might be interested in participating and Tony McBride from Cardboard Citizens visited a number of shelters and other sites to talk about the project just before Christmas.
