'In the Summer, all you hear, all day long, are skylarks.  And there’s loads of them'

A play, by its very nature, is temporary.  It is an event and an experience for both performers and audience.  The project needed something more permanent as a legacy, and what better than the voices of the interviewees themselves.  

We have gathered together all of the interviews and you can choose which ones to listen to by clicking on each link (these files are in the process of being constructed and will be available soon).   Our enduring hope is that they will be available in perpetuity and will indeed show the stories behind the concrete, cranes and construction.  They are proof of how lives can be at once ordinary and extraordinary and that it is people who create a community, rather than architects, planners and policymakers.
