Welcome to the Blahs, Mr Nighy
We are honoured and genuinely thrilled to welcome Mr Bill Nighy as our company patron as part of our 30th anniversary celebrations. With an expansive acting career grounded in theatre performance he brings much wisdom and experience to our practice.
“Theatre does something nothing else can. It allows children to find things out about themselves and each other and the world in a singular fashion. It involves language and ideas as well as physical expression and an opportunity to investigate behaviour and manners and can uniquely illuminate subjects such as history and politics. It is unbeatable in providing a framework for children to gain confidence and plays its part in the democratising process essential to a sane and balanced life. It does these things better than anything I’ve come across. Theatre Company Blah Blah Blah are an essential resource at a time when such things are dangerously undervalued”
“I’ve worked for and with children of all ages and I’ve seen how [theatre] can reach them. It also offers a unparalleled opportunity for them to connect, rely upon and look out for one another and examine minutely language and human behaviour. It can also be, for the record, enormous fun and a crash course in humility. The Blahs are an exemplary example of how successful it can be. I’m proud to have been invited to associate myself with such an important company”
