We are Red Sauce Theatre Company at The New Theatre Royal Portsmouth and we deliver drama workshops to the elderly and those living with dementia, we are now working with coordinators and the carers in our community

Our aim is to raise awareness of dementia in a positive way.  All our workshops are carefully structured to bring about positivity, we aim to create well being and a fun environment for us to connect with the elderly and those living with dementia.

We work with the elderly frail and people living with dementia. Using drama technique to engage and communicate. Our aim is to inspire and empower.   Based in Hampshire, we are all qualified professionals with teaching qualifications and experience.  Sessions include stories and poems, music and masks, relaxation and reminiscence…We use a range of drama techniques to engage and to aid communication including improvisation, mime and forum theatre.

The company was set up by Director and facilitator Rachel Goodall, a teacher and industry professional for over twenty years, she studied Contemporary performing arts at Winchester University and wrote her first book “Finding Peace” in 2015 about a woman called Eliza and her struggles with daily life and through her loved ones she learns how to cope living with dementia.

 Since then we have welcomed a team of professionals including Nick Downes, drama facilitator,  creative writer Sally Carmel  and have we have worked collaboratively with Stephen Surridge (Touchlife Productions) and the local artist Meehalska.
