Where We Dream


Where We Dream, written by François Matarasso, follows West Bromwich Operatic Society (WBOS) as they stage Mel Brooks’ The Producers from rehearsals to curtain call at the New Alexandra Theatre, Birmingham, in November 2011.

The book describes the whole project but also ranges widely over the company’s history to explore the place of amateur theatre in a disadvantaged urban area. It includes a short film, made in collaboration with Ben Wigley, which captures the group’s performing spirit, as well as images by Kate Jackson.
