Theatre Centre, in collaboration with Theatre503, has commissioned 19 of the UK’s most exciting playwrights to write a series of short pieces for the nation, for anyone to read and record a performance.
A range of extraordinary talent, from multi award-winning writers to thrilling new voices of the future, have been brought together to make a digital anthology reflecting humanity and the unprecedented circumstances we are living in.
In keeping with Theatre Centre’s commitment to generate exceptional work in a time of crisis, ImagiNation will bring people together through the art of storytelling and serve as a timely reminder that we are all coping differently.
The stories will be released for everyone in the nation – individuals, families, flatmates, school children, care homes and youth theatres – to submit their version, bringing writers and communities together across the country in exciting and unpredictable acts of everyday creativity.
Theatre Centre and Theatre503 will use a selection of these recordings to create a patchwork of the nation – a reflection of these stories told by a multitude of voices.
Theatre Centre is also providing fun tutorial videos to inspire and perfect the recordings. These will include top performance tips from actors, directorial insights into how to film and approach the text, as well as vocal coaching to enhance delivery and bring the stories to life.
When: Recordings can be submitted until 6pm on 10th June 2020
Where: Via Theatre Centre’s website
