Elders Company

We are seeking participants for our first ever Elders Company project. This had been planned to take the form of a week-long intensive devising process, leading to a performance at the Theatre on the final day. However, due to the current guidance on social distancing, we have adapted our plans and are now looking to deliver the project remotely.

Our intention is to recruit eight individuals aged 55+ who will write and perform their own original two-minute monologues, inspired by our production of The Village Bikewhich we have unfortunately had to cancel. These monologues will be filmed by the participants and edited together to create a short film that will be shared online on Friday 19 June, which would have been the Press Night for the production.

Please note, The Village Bike contains very strong language and scenes of a sexual nature. The project will involve discussions around both of these subjects.

If you would like more information please download the Information Sheet below. When you are ready to apply, please complete the Application Form and return it by Thursday 23 April.
