Youth Theatre Online: Love Song

Whilst our youth theatre workshops are suspended to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, we are sharing weekly updates with theatre related online resources for our youth theatre. We’ve added the newsletter here in case it’s helpful for others too!

Week 6: 27/04/2020

Live Artist Q&As

Don’t forget our online live Q&A with theatre maker and LAMDA graduate Rosa Hesmondhalgh about Creating and Devising Your Work has been postponed to 11th May.

In the meantime, to help you prepare your questions for our Q&A, please watch the video of Rosa’s play Madame Ovary, filmed during her production’s run in Edinburgh (sent via email).

We’ll also do another online chat at 3.30pm on Monday 4th May  – lovely to catch up today!

Love Song: this week’s play screening

Lovesong intricately weaves the story of a couple in the first stages of their life together with the same couple as they approach the end of this story. A delicate mix of storytelling and physical theatre, this production was captured by Digital Theatre live at the Lyric Hammersmith, London.
