Premiering on June’s Digbeth First Friday, alongside late night exhibition openings Eastside Projects presents a unique revival of two plays originally devised and performed in 1975 during artist Roger Coward’s Artist Placement group project in Small Heath.

‘Happiness in the Homeland’ and ‘There we were and here we Go’ were presented forty years ago by Roger Coward and four other artists – Gavin Brown, Roland Lewis, Evadne Stevens and Frances Viner – who worked together as part of an Artists Placement Group project in Small Heath. The group of artists created one play themselves and, through a process of improvisation, worked with local residents who wrote a second play that described their experience of life in their community at that time.
