Eccleston Praises Special Needs Theatre

Christopher Eccleston has recently spoken to the BBC in praise of Celebrity Pig, the special needs theatre company of which he is patron.

He told BBC One’s Inside Out Northwest programme, of his first encounter with the theatre company, when he saw a piece performed on the theme of neglect in children’s care homes.

That the piece was written and performed by people with learning disabilities seemed to underline and enhance the message.

“It’s the best piece of theatre I’ve ever seen. It was volcanic really because there was a tremendous amount of anger in certain people who’d been abused and mistreated and it reminded me of what theatre’s for really. That really is the thing that drew me into the group – because they make vital theatre

“Celebrity Pig and groups like Celebrity Pig are using theatre for the right reasons – to give a voice to people who don’t necessarily have a voice.

The Ninth Doctor actor was was born in Salford, and is a strong believer in supporting local projects.
