A Series of Chats About Friendship

By Danny Prosser and Alfie Heffer


We (Alfie & Danny) want to understand more about friendship. We’re out in Gateshead, roaming, sitting, thinking and ready to meet you. We might have biscuits and we will have questions.

We'd love to talk about what friendship means to you. Friendships past and present. How they feel, how they’re shaped, why they drift apart or why they are sustained. This forms part of the research for our show 'A Series of Quiet Acts' (working title). With your permission, each of these conversations will be recorded for our rehearsal room. 


How it works

You book a slot and you will be emailed a meeting point in Gateshead and further information. On the day, you'll come find us and join us for a roam around friendship. Conversations will last around 20 to 30 minutes. If you have specific access needs, you can let us know before or after booking a slot, by emailing
