Romeo and Juliet has started previewing at the RSC in Straford. It plays there until late September and will then go to London. Why mention it? art\write are using the play to inspire ten collaborations between writers and visual artists. I am one of the writers and have been teamed up with artist Sheila Farrell.
It has been a interesting process and we’ve had some good conversations. The work in progress is, I think, promising. The written piece will be a 5 minute two-hander.
art\write have run similar projects before but not with the writers and artists working so closely together. It will be fascinating to see the results.
The performances of the written pieces are on Friday 8th June and Saturday 16th June, both at 7pm. The shows are at the Artists Workhouse in Studley (more details below). Tickets are £7 each and numbers will be limited.
The exhibition runs from Saturday 9th June to Sunday 17th June, 11am-4pm, (closed Monday and Tuesday).
