Everyone has a tale to tell

Our lottery funded project is offering people that would like to start writing but are not sure where to start or people that prefer to tell stories out loud but struggle putting pen to paper. We are also offering spaces to people that would like to learn about film making and editing but don’t have the equipment to give it a try. Patrick Graham, echo journalist for L8, and other special guests, will be joining us on this playful journey to discover the stories you’d like to tell and those that are personal to you. The project allows you to organise a spoken word night and as your stories are turned into films and documentaries, a film night will end the course. There is no fee to participate but an understanding of the value of this course to each member must be recognised at the start of the course. The course will start Wednesday 24th May, 18.30-20.30 at the Studio Below, Liverpool. Contact us if you would like to hear more. Please let us know why you’d like to be part of the course.

Seven Slices of Life

Sseven slices of life

As part of our theatre makers course brand new writers and brand new directors brought together an evening of short plays all expressing slices of real life. From a robbery at a pizza shop to a woman buying a robot companion, to the youngest Brothel keeper and the first time a nurse meets death. Beautiful, funny and uplifting. Opening nights reviewed it as being a brave production that really worked.
