Dear God...
“Hardly anyone can ever find God because God is right at the end of your mind after all the background thoughts are gone.”

The Hiding Place

Oddments Theatre production 'The Hiding Place' tells the true story of Corrie Ten Boom and her journey from watch shop to concentration camp. 
 
The two-act play, which started in 2017, has been a phenomenal success.  Over 90 performances have taken place across the country and it is estimated that approximately 10,000 people have seen it so far.  The play that churches use for outreach to their community is still finding new audiences and is now in its third year of touring.  There is also an adapted version of the production for use in prisons and secondary schools. 
 
The play focuses on what being a Christian means in the darkest of situations, how Corrie found strength in her faith and the positive effect it had on others in terrible circumstances.  It is a true story of courageous actions and demonstrates faith and love in action.  Oddments produced the original script and it is performed by a cast of six.  A professionally built stage (adaptable for any type of venue), props, costumes, sound and lights are used to enhance the quality of the production.
