The Drum


There are over 264,000 of us living across 39 neighbourhoods.
50.2% of us are female and 49.8% of us are male.
On average, we’ll live to between 78.9 and 82.7 years.
12,900 of us live in the top 3% of England’s most deprived areas.
And 73.8% of us reported ‘very high’ levels of life satisfaction and happiness.

CITIZEN is a living breathing portrait of Plymouth; Britain’s Ocean City, directed by Lucy Hirst and performed by Theatre Royal Plymouth’s People’s Company.
Real people, sharing real stories.

Our city is changing and we’re going to talk about it.
