Over 250 people from different areas of the country have come together as part of the national storytelling project, ImagiNation, led by Theatre Centre and Theatre503. With less than a week to go, there’s still time to read, record and share submissions online. Recordings can be submitted until 6pm Monday 20 July 2020 through Theatre Centre’s website.
Using the exciting digital anthology created by acclaimed writers, including Olivier Award-winners Timberlake Wertenbaker (Our Country’s Good) and Jon Brittain (Rotterdam), local communities, organisations, individuals, and families have all shared their voices. Showcasing the diversity of our nation and its creative responses during the current chaos, Theatre Centre and Theatre503 will use a selection of the recordings to create a patchwork of stories told by a multitude of voices. There’s still time to get involved and have your voice be heard!
n keeping with Theatre Centre’s commitment to generate exceptional work in a time of crisis, their anthology will bring people together through the art of storytelling and serve as a timely reminder that we are all coping differently. The stories will be released for everyone in the nation– individuals, families, flatmates, school children, care homes and youth theatres – to submit their version, bringing writers and communities together across the country in exciting and unpredictable acts of everyday creativity. Theatre Centre and Theatre503 will use a selection of these recordings to create a patchwork of the nation – a reflection of these stories told by a multitude of voices. They are pleased to have teamed up with Nick Hern Books, one of the UK’s leading play publisher and performing rights licensors, to be the Publishing Partner for ImagiNation.
