Rural Arts announce Keepsake Commission ‘Ask For Sophie’

Rural Arts is proud to announce the streaming of a brand-new audio play exploring isolation within LGBTQ+ communities.  

‘Ask for Sophie’ by Kerrie Marsh is a new commission from Rural Arts’ project Keepsake, which connects communities and reduces isolation caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.  

This unique play is accessed via telephone line at any time, night or day. A character – the chatty and eponymous Sophie – answers the call. You, the audience member, play the role of a silent caller to an LGBT+ support line for people in rural areas. You’re in good hands with Sophie who guides you, shares her experiences and lets you know that you’re not alone. Sophie’s always there – all you have to do is call.  

Ask for Sophie is available from Monday 3rd – Sunday 16th May, 24 hours per day, by calling 01845 980 758.
