Reflections about the Coronavirus Pandemic in 2020.

Memories of Coronavirus from a local perspective
I’d like to cordially invite you to an event in Stanney Fields Park on Saturday 21st October at 2.30pm.

I have a commission from CW&C to create a piece of verbatim theatre based on the theme of Reflections about the Coronavirus Pandemic in 2020. Reflecting on the world impacting event and looking forward. Over the summer I spent time with local people audio recording their memories of that time. Since September I have been working with our hugely talented InterACT Youth Theatre to put together a verbatim theatre presentation based on the audio we received.

On the Saturday 21st October in Stanney Fields Park we would invite you to join us at the COVID tree memorial for a 2.30pm start. This is the circle of white beech trees you may have seen towards the top end (photo on the flyer). The presentation is only about 20 minutes long. The young people have been so enthusiastic and committed to this project and have worked on a very tight time scale of only 7 rehearsals. So do come along and support our young people.

We don’t know what the weather will be like and no seating will be supplied so be prepared for whatever the British climate can throw at you. The performance will happen regardless. I look forward to seeing many of you there for what has proved to be a very thought provoking and enjoyable project.

The young people will also attend Theatre Porto on Monday 23rd October to present their creation there too.
