How To Live or, The Trouble With Women Is…

The sixth and final piece in the Nothing on Earth: Shorts series is called ‘How To Live or, The Trouble With Women Is…’

We asked residents of Dacorum Borough Council in Hertfordshire to send us stories about their lives and Anna Reynolds has skilfully woven together their inspiring tales of courage, community, adventure and survival.

Have a look at the trailer for a taste of what is to come in the new year:

How To Live features four of the actors from the Nothing on Earth: Shorts series: Suzanne Ahmet, Nia Davies, Chanel Glasgow and Géhane Strehler and we are very excited to be joined by Shalini Peiris.
