a winter series

In October 2020, we sent out a Writers Call to submit ideas for monologues and short scenes for two or three actors. We were overwhelmed by the response and selected pieces that represented a wide range of style, theme and enabled the actors to use skills.

We were pleased to showcase writing from: Cara Galbraith, Chelsea Grace, Valentina Galdi, Dougal Thomson, Kayleigh MacDonald, Rachel Flynn, Kris Cummins and Lindz McLeod.

The series was released on YouTube and Instagram between 26th December 2020 and 20th January 2021. The series is available for viewing on our website, Instagram and YouTube.

In December '20 / January '21, we produced a brand new series of short monologues and scenes with our Adult Acting Group. The series is part of our response to lockdown restrictions - live theatre wasn't an option in 2020 and the only way forward was digital. We started our Adult Acting Group in September 2020 to create a space for adults to be creative during lockdown and to offer some weekly social interaction for adults. 

You can read all about our writers and directors here or you can watch the series here.
