Birmingham students raise funds for people experiencing homelessness

Our house

People experiencing homelessness are to benefit from the generosity of students from the University of Birmingham, thanks to members of the Guild Musical Theatre Group (GMTG).

In March, the Guild is putting on 'GMTG's Our House: The Madness Musical' - a play accompanied by the music of Madness. During the performances, they will be taking donations to support Birmingham homeless shelter Tabor House, which supports people experiencing homelessness to make a fresh start. 

The students will ask theatregoers to give what they can in support of the shelter, which offers a safe and secure place to sleep alongside help to move on. 

The play tells the story of Joe who, on his 16th birthday, breaks into a building development site in an effort to impress his girlfriend. However, when the police arrive, Joe must choose between running away or facing the consequences of his actions. From here the show follows two parallel versions of Joe’s life based on the choice he makes that night.
