The Delft Youth Theatre for Health drama group came together in 2011 after taking part in a series of workshops, facilitated by the Sustainable Livelihoods Foundation, that focused on social and cultural influences behind the high burden of TB and HIV in their community. This video is taken from various performances of ‘Bad News? Good News!’, a play based entirely on the personal stories and suggestions of the workshop participants who then went on to become the actors. The video highlights key features of the play and shows just how resilient the group is in the face of a tough working environment.
