Scratch Night Programme
Written by Jaime Woodham
Performed by Jaime Woodham, Steve Hay, and Abi Hood.
Let us take you by the hand and lead you through the Streets of Waterloo, we’ll show you something that will make you change your mind.
Waterloo is a trio of monologues, based on real life stories and characters, inspired by the writers experiences of growing up in an area that is not quite as it seems.
Created by Anne L Ryan
Music: Spiegel im Spiegel
This solo physical theatre performance works with stillness, movement, voice and music connecting with what Arvo Part calls ‘a prism of light’. There is no narrative just the observation of what is happening now and the immediate affect it is having on us.
This vignette is the first of a series of five. The series will be developed over the next year and drawn together into a 40 minute solo vocal theatre piece.
The Fourth Dog
Written by Zena Forster
Performed by members of Oxford Actor’s Network:
Three generations, three stories, three toilets. Set on the day of a big family wedding, The Fourth Dog is a play about heredity, identity and love.
It’s the Big Day, but things aren’t quite going to plan. Katie’s realised she can’t just ‘wing it’, Alice can’t face playing “Mother of The Bride”, Deedee can’t bear being on the edge and Valda can’t get out of her wheelchair without the help of her husband, Peter, who just can’t help himself. Then there’s Andy, who’s beginning to think he ‘just can’t’…
Whilst the play was originally written for the stage, it has only been produced for radio and so together with the writer, we would like to explore some of the challenges of presenting in within the confined space the setting requires.
