"RedCape's workshop has been invaluable to planning my first trip to Edinburgh. It was great to get tailored advice and it made me feel much more confident about taking my work to the Fringe. It really made me think about the responsibility that we have as theatre makers to ensure that we are creating something which has a lasting impact upon the communities with which we share our work."
