Home Spun - a new collaborative performance!

Home Spun
A Performance devised and written by Out of Character and Converge Theatre Students

Edited and Created by Mark Gowland and Gemma Alldred
Directed by Gemma Alldred

Click: HomeSpun blogsite

Home Spun is a tale. It’s the tale of Liz and Jeff, the children they have and the life they lead together.
It’s the tale of the people who lived here before and maybe of the people who will live here after.
It’s the tale of a man who lives lonely, watching others.
Home Spun is a tale of a house; if walls could talk, if you like.
Told in the traverse intertwining narratives and personal reflections Home Spun tells the yarn we want to tell about Our House, Our Home, Our Imagined Life and Our Reality.
So we invite you to join us, come in, wipe your feet and settle down in a comfy chair to watch and listen what we have crafted.

Experiment no. 1

A fantastic time was had by all last week as One in Four theatre company joined forces with Out of Character in a meeting of minds to create what became known as 'Experiment No. 1'!
It was a fraught few days as everyone worked hard to collaborate on the fragments of material each company had brought to share and resulted in a thoughful performance on the theme of care.

Drinks were shared and conversation flowed on the varied subjects of performance, performance and mental health and who's round it was next!

These pictures show some of the story but the experience and growth gained as individuals, performers and companies is much greater.
