Those of you of a creative disposition may be interested to know that the theatre company Supporting Wall have commissioned the first five plays of a new Parliament.
For those not familiar with them, Supporting Wall are a small but exciting company of players who have received rave reviews for their production Moonfleece, an exploration of the inner-city, urban-myth psychology of BNP activism.
In an exciting experiment in political theatre, all five plays will be written, cast and rehearsed within twenty-four hours of the polls closing. The one-off performance will be at 8pm on the 8th May at the New Players Theatre.
Those playwrights announced so far include:
- Che Walker (The Frontline, Been So Long);
- Rex Obano (Slaves);
- Anders Lustgarten (A Day at the Racists);
- Phil Willmott (director of Once Upon a Time at the Adephi)
