Elders Company monologues

As part of Festival 2020 we had planned our first Elders Company project inspired by the themes in Penelope Skinner's play The Village Bike. Due to the pandemic and cancellation of the season, we had to rethink the way we delivered this work. 

After an application process open to anyone aged 55+, eight participants were invited to work with our LEAP team and a professional writer to create and perform original monologues. Tonight (19 June) would have been our press night for The Village Bike, so we are pleased to share their work with you on our YouTube playlist here.
