Thanks to funding from Arts Council England we will be delivering an R&D project with professional actors and Theatre Director, Helen Tennison, using the Suitcase Stories songs and stories as a starting point. They will workshop the material through a series of online Zoom sessions and Helen will also be writing though this time. We will be showing some of the work through an online scratch performance to an invited audience to get feedback about the piece. The aim is to come up with a workable script that can be created into a live theatre piece at a later stage. We hope to perform this in Worcester.
