Talking about the news Paul-Ryan Carberry said: “We wanted to find a way to continue to support artists we’ve worked with and provide our audiences with performances to enjoy from their own homes during this necessary period of lockdown. We are really delighted to share work from an incredible and varied group of artists including spoken-word, music and a wonderful new play, and all on a pay-what-you-can basis.As always, a huge, huge thank you to all our audience and patrons, without your support we would not have been able to make it through this last year.”
Information about the shows are as follows:
Dear Peter – written and performed by Evangeline Dickson: Join Ash on her 25th birthday as J.M. Barrie’s seminal hero Peter Pan plummets her into a spiral of first love, first loss, and every story that makes us who we are. Set to a nostalgia-infused soundtrack, Dear Peter explores whether anyone is truly free from growing up, through a collection of fragmented memories, poetic frankness and darkly comedic storytelling.
Reuben Johnson – Reuben Johnson evokes the challenges of the here and now through plosive, northern verse. An urgent and energetic solo performance which draws into focus the nation in which we live.
Nick Hart – Nick Hart leads audiences on a musical journey through stories of old in this stunning folk music concert.
