We have been keeping our drama muscles flexed with a number of readings, focusing on plays we might do in the future and/or small cast plays we could still do under current restrictions. Like everyone else, we have had the odd technical hitch (‘Can you hear me?’ ‘I can’t see the edge of the script’ ‘No, you’re buffering’), but we have had fun and tried out some promising material, including The Children, by Lucy Kirkwood, a three-hander about the responsibility of the older generation to younger people when an environmental disaster strikes (with jokes). We have also read the searing satire God of Carnage by Yasmina Reza, and Elegy by Nick Payne, an experimental play about life and death choices, as well as the family drama According to Claudia by Phil Mansell. Most readings come with an open invitation, and if you are interested, please contact us
