Funded in 1994, The Attic Theatre Company is a Merton-based touring theatre that works within the community to engage and empower people in the arts.

Twelve years ago they were commissioned by the Metropolitan Police and Fire Brigade to develop plays based on educating people on crime reduction and home safety. Ma Kelly's Doorstep and Ma Kelly Plays It Safe were hugely successful, especially among senior residents. Having performed these shows over two hundred and thirty times, Attic Theatre decided to make a new play called Ma Kelly's Games. Written by Jane James, it is an entertaining show with a serious message about fitness, health, and independent living for the 50s - 70s. Although it is aimed at older people, it is meant to be enjoyed by all ages, and help close the generation gap.

%%'Ma Kelly's idea of keeping fit is changing the channels on the telly - until she finds getting out of her chair ain't easy....
Her daughter Joan drops in. She's had a shock, she's not yet fifty and the bus driver thought she had a Freedom pass....
They are joined by young Danielle, she's aiming to make the under 18's Chelsea team - but her knee is giving her jip.

The three share their woes and decide to go on a mission to get fitter.'%%

The show is forty minutes, and afterwards a local movement group will give you a taster of the kind of activities you can do to keep fit and health.
