Scratch 'n' Scran
Work in Progress by Luca Rutherford & new work In Floods by Greg Wohead
Audiences are invited to enjoy their Sunday lunch (UK time zone specific!) with this inspiring experimental Scratch session. Two new separate works by exciting UK theatre makers Luca Rutherford and Greg Wohead will be presented, and followed up with facilitated feedback discussions.
Luca Rutherford's new work-in-progress performance tells a story of discovering quiet power in a moment of making a lot of noise. It looks at the stories we tell and the ones that get retold, the ones we hide behind and the ones we have the power to re-make, re-mould and disrupt.
Greg Wohead’s In Floods is an early-stage reading of his new material. Strange things happen when you unexpectedly return to where you came from for two back-to-back funerals. The lump in your throat grows until there is no room for it.
