The Highest Level

On Monday 18 March we welcome Helena Thompson back to the fold with a one-act play about disturbing events on a high rise Council estate. Since she last had a script read with us she's had several successes:

(1) a film she scripted, called AFFECTED, which was produced by SPID Theatre Co Ltd with a grant from Mediabox, was shown at La Femme Film Festival in Hollywood (where she met up with the much-missed Napoleon Ryan)

(2) a radio play THE BURNING TIMES was broadcast on Radio 4

and (3) an animated film HIGH ABOVE THE SKY, that she scripted and which was drawn by children attending SPID Theatre workshops,  has been shown at Film Festivals in Germany, Poland, Brazil, Australia and Walthamstow (!) where it won a prize.

We will start at about 7.30, as usual, and anyone arriving before then can enter through the bar in the normal way.  But late-comers will find the doors barred to us and the general public because of an Athletics Club AGM(!)  Don't worry.  You can still get to our upstairs room but instead of going through the bar you will have to go round the pub to a side entrance which will be marked for PLAYER-PLAYWRIGHTS.  Proceed on through and you can go upstairs as normal.

Food and drink can still be ordered and staff will bring it up.
