In this article, Valentina Baú describes a participatory theatre initiative implemented in Kenya, with the aim of understanding the changes that were initiated towards the re-establishment of peace between communities. The article begins with a literature review on Theatre for Development (TfD) and its progress towards a more participatory approach. This is followed by an introduction of the project and the context in which it took place. Baú then presents the study design and Theory of Change (ToC) developed for the analysis, opening the path to a discussion of the findings generated through that framework. Final reflections bring to light a number of issues to be considered when working with participatory theatre in peace interventions.
