What makes a person take a stand? Is it the sudden impulse of a single moment, or one small part of a lifelong commitment?
What makes a person elect to stand up and be counted? And would you do the same?
Chris Goode & Company and Oxford Playhouse present STAND: real life stories of courage and conscience from ordinary people who stood up for something, or someone, they believed in.
Six people who chose to act; and six actors, telling their stories in their own words. Stories about justice and sustainability, about friendship and risk, about bravery and kindness. Extraordinary moments from everyday life.
STAND is a moving, inspiring celebration of the power of people to change their corner of the world.
