Escapism 2020 – Plays to Perform at Home for All Ages

May 27th, 2020

Menagerie is publishing 4 new plays on the theme of ESCAPISM for you to perform and record at home.  Written in response to the coronavirus crisis and the ensuing shutdown, the plays offer you a chance to be creative at home.

The plays are written by Fraser Grace, Danusia Iwaszko, Craig Baxter and Vanessa Ackerman.  One play is for 1 performer, another for 2 performers, another for 3 performers, and a final one is for 4 performers.  Apart from the play for 1 person, all the plays can be performed by people of any age, from (about) 7 years and upwards.

We would like you to send us your recording of the play you perform.  As they’re written for audio/radio, there’s opportunities to have fun creating sound effects as well as performing the roles.  We aim to gather, and then release, dozens of versions of these plays from all over the region, the country and indeed the world!

HERE is the link for further information.

    We are a small group of retired people who occasionally get together in a play reading group. I am interested in this project and would like to find out more

    This sound fun I would be interested in being involved, I have been involved in performing before with the Slips, and also been on the radio on 105, this sounds good.
