We are delighted to be working once again with mental health charity “See Me” to offer a programme of short online writing sessions and live zoom workshops, culminating in the creation a series of five minute monologues performed by professional actors.
These monologues will be humorous and thought provoking. The title of the series will be “Hidden Women”, and it will aim to take us beyond what people see, hear, or take at face value of woman in their 50's.
Premiere with Beacon Arts
The monologues will be filmed and shown initially on online platforms, with a premiere in partnership with Beacon Arts on their social media channels, on the 26th of November at 7pm.
See the: Beacon Arts Facebook Page
If you don't have a Facebook account you'll also be able to watch it here on this web page:
The Post Show Q&A
Please join In Motion, See Me , Beacon Arts and the creatives involved for a post show Q & A to discuss the writing process, the monologues and how theatre can get stories out there that often aren't told. The Q & A will be hosted on Zoom. If you'd like to take part, please register here: Q&A Registration
