Love. Life. No Sat Nav
Following a routine M.O.T our comedy play with songs has received a new battery and is now available for you to book a seat.
Thursday 3 December, 2pm and 7.30pm at The Old Library Arts Venue, Leeming Street, Mansfield, Nottinghamshire. NG18 1NG
Earlier in the summer, with support using public funding by Arts Council England, we created ‘Love. Life. No Sat Nav’ - a devised performance which communicates the stories, scenarios and experiences of an integrated cast. We had such a fantastic response from audiences and industry professionals alike. We were invited to become Associate Company with New Perspectives Theatre Company and received another year of Residency at The Old Library Theatre, with County Youth Arts.
We are delighted to invite you to see the show that inspired great people to say these fab things…
“Real-life storytelling: funny, heart-breaking, life affirming..This show guarantees to make you look at yourself and the world around you differently.” – Sally Anne Tye, Executive Director, New Perspectives Theatre Company
“Unamina Theatre Company are an exciting new talent for our region, combining high quality production values, a strong script and great performers. As a centre dedicated to Inclusive Practice it was really exciting for me to see a fresh new approach to disability focussed work and we are very much looking forward to working with the company in the future. This is a show not to miss, not only as a great night out but also to simply remind oneself that life is for celebrating with laughter and tears!” Michaela Butter MBE, Director of Attenborough Arts Centre, University of Leicester
“Artistically it was beautiful, creative and charming. I must also mention the live music which was absolutely perfect…It was touching, thought-provoking and extremely uplifting – a celebration of what we can all achieve” – Sally Siner, Playwright

We are delighted to announce that we have been successful in our Grants for the Arts application. HOORAH! We will receive funding from The Arts Council of England to explore and develop Unanima Theatre’s place within the arts sector.
We are also excited to share with you our new home. Unanima Theatre will now be Artists in Residence at The Old Library Arts Venue and Media Centre in Mansfield, the home of the formidable County Youth Arts who have been instrumental in Unanima’s inception and continuing success.
A new partnership with Vision West Nottinghamshire College and Create Theatre is also an exciting development and we hope to work with VWNC’s Performing Arts Graduates and current students as Early Career Artists.
Alongside organisational development, Unanima Theatre will invite new participants to research, develop, devise and present a brand new piece of theatre to be performed at various venues in Nottinghamshire and beyond.

We will be launching a crowd fund very soon. If you would like to donate a pound or two, you would be making an amazing contribution to an innovative, inclusive theatre company.
If you are rich, you are welcome to donate as much as you like.
We are almost at the ‘pressing send and holding our breath with fingers and toes crossed,’ stage of our funding application.
Although we have been quiet recently, our Creative Producer – Tracy and Creative Director – Jayne, have been planning, prepping, attending training, developing and fundraising…lots of things with ‘ings’, including tweeting (on which we have just gathered our 500th follow = @hamletinlove).
So thank you for your patience. Please keep in touch and look out for some exciting Unanima news in the next few weeks.
A fantastic reminder of a wonderful summer.
