April: Staged Reading of #Penetration
We have just finished auditioning actors to perform in a staged reading of Carolyn Lloyd-Davies' new play, #Penetration, directed by our Associate Director, David Travaskis, on 29 April at ALRA, London. We are planning to produce #Penetration in 2020. Details of our cast for the play reading can be found on our What's On page.
March: Plans for our Care Home Tour
We are in the middle of planning our next Care Home Tour later this year, again in Oxfordshire. This will be our fourth tour. More details to be announced very shortly. All very exciting!
January: Playwriting Course
September: Care Home Tour
We will be doing another Care Home Tour in September, and this time, going to 10 homes with Go for it, Girl! by Pauline Massey, one of our original Third Act playwriting members. Pauline won the Care Home Writing Competition we held in December 2017.
Also our funding application was very recently granted for our Care Home tour, which is wonderful!
December: AgeUK Oxfordshire
We helped with AgeUK's campaign to make people aware of how lonely it is for older people, especially at Christmas by providing actors who took it in turns to sit in the chair with a blanket, whilst others read poetry about old age to passersbys at Bonn Square, Oxford.
