Lightpost Theatre Company

In 2015, Birmingham Repertory Theatre took part in an initial pilot scheme -  Up My Street, a partnership project funded by Mind, to help strengthen mental health in young black men through theatre. This scheme was developed in response to statistics that show young black men in the UK are much more likely to develop serious mental illness than any other demographic.

Motivated by the scheme, participants formed Lightpost Theatre Company.
