Over the weekend I met with Theatre in the Rough at the Merseyside Maritime Museum who are a charity which promote new writing for the stage by young people aged 13-25 from across Greater Merseyside.
This year the group are developing a series of plays about Titanic and Liverpool, the maritime history department were approached by acclaimed Liverpool playwright Chris Fittock who is artistic director for Theatre in the Rough. We provided a Titanic presentation for these budding new writers, drawing upon the themes from the new exhibition Titanic & Liverpool: the untold story at the Merseyside Maritime Museum.
Their writing will result in ten new monologues and ten short audio-plays about Titanic and Liverpool, drawing upon real life stories and experiences. A locally-curated exhibition and live music will also feature within a festival which takes place 3rd -7th July, Old Christ Church, Waterloo, Liverpool which is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Arts Council England. For further information please see their website.
