PENETRATION THE PLAY
After months of not knowing if our production of Penetration by Carolyn Lloyd-Davies would be able to be performed at The Cockpit, due to Covid and the numerous lockdowns, we opened on 22 September! It was just joyous to be back on stage, and for the cast and crew to be working again.
We have had some wonderful 4 star reviews which have thrilled us.
Third Act Playwriting Group
Over the past few months we haven’t been able to meet but our playwrights have still been creating wonderful monologues and plays, undeterred by Lockdown!
Peter Tickler wrote a 10 minute monologue called Buona Notte, which was performed by actor Hetty Bentley, directed and edited by Hugo Tickler.
SEPTEMBER CARE HOME TOUR
We are delighted that The Curious Case of Lady Fowler, by Stephanie Connell, has been chosen for our September Care Home Tour, and that we have also secured the wonderful Emma Webb to direct for us.
Emma is a director and facilitator with a background in movement working in the UK and abroad. She has worked as a movement director for Leaning House productions, Human Story Theatre, UnderConstruction Theatre, the Oxford Playhouse and the Old Fire Station/ Crisis, and creates her own work ranging from choreographic to one woman shows, street performance and theatre based. Most recently Emma developed The Elves and The Shoemaker for Wild Boor productions for younger audiences as well as devising a separate, sensory show for an audience with differing needs.
