Venue: Roxburgh Hall

A Play Reading

Welcome to the first of a series of Readings of great plays with an opportunity to explore the piece further in discussion and debate. Escaped Alone by Caryl Churchill will be brought to life with an animated reading by a cast of actors from the local community. A light-on-its-feet, elliptical view of the apocalypse. It foresees that when we are poisoned by chemical leaks, private patients will be able to buy gas masks in assorted colours. That when a wind developed by property developers starts turning heads inside out, the army will fire nets to catch flying cars. That the obese will sell slices of themselves. This is fantasy intricately wired into current politics. It is intimate and vast. Domestic and wild.

Light refreshments on the night
