Performance artist and actress Hannah Walker asked us to support promotion and driving engagement ahead of her new multimedia theatre production, Gamble.
The show was previewed in Newcastle and Coventry, lifting the glittery curtain of jackpots and big wins to explore the complexities of addiction and its effect on people and their loved ones. The show's heart is the narrative of how and why Hannah's family lost £100,000 and her goal to win it back.
Do Gooder supported comms, content production, and copy to drive engagement and raise awareness ahead of the show.
Hannah gave an interview to the Guardian ahead of the show where she talks about how gambling addiction has nothing to do with someone's character.
A post-show discussion followed each performance with Dr Matthew Gaskell – Clinical Lead & Consultant Psychologist for The NHS Northern Gambling Service.
We have previous with this sector, so it was a good one for us in terms of flipping the narrative and taking a supporting role from another perspective.
Do Gooder will support Hannah as she takes the show on a national tour next year.
The performance of Gamble features live play, images, and sounds which may be very triggering to people with a gambling addiction or who are in recovery.
