Arts Council funded opportunity to see what could be in your Village Hall next season!

Thanks to Arts Council England, and after an enormous amount of effort, we are about to go live with a series of screenings of  NAMING THE VIEW. Having negotiated Covid and all the problems that that threw up, we finally managed to film a Studio Performance of this powerful play in January.  The film is fully accessible with versions that are signed, captioned and audio-described on request.

This powerful drama has been seen on the Rural Touring circuit in 2019/20 (just before the first lockdown) with Highlights and Carn to Cove.  Below is what a Promoter wrote about the show afterwards:

1) Sometimes even quality acting looks like acting, this looked like a natural conversation- totally convincing. 2) Attention to detail – down to the hairstyle change in Part 1 & Part 2. Superbly written, engaging and thought-provoking, no padding, exceptional performances – this is perfect for rural touring: minimal props will fit in any stage area. Lovely people to work with.

So the online screenings coming up will be a perfect opportunity for Schemes and Promoters to watch the piece, see our work and make an informed decision about whether or not to include us on future menus.

The first screening is tomorrow night (10 March) at The Pound Arts Centre, Corsham (where we rehearsed and developed the show back in 2018).  Thereafter, every Thursday evening for the next 4 weeks you can watch a screening from the comfort of your own sofa!  Details of hosts and links to book are below:

Thursday 17 March – RNID – Live Facebook Event

Thursday 24 March – Tortive Theatre – YouTube Premiere

Thursday 31 March – intoBodmin – Live Screening

Thursday 7 April – Tortive Theatre – YouTube Premiere

From mid April the film will be available to all domestic abuse charities and services free of charge upon request.  If you would like more information about the film, how to access them or future live performances please contact: jules@findingthewill.com.

Moving – Funny – Wonderful – Relevant! Wonderful writing – so much truth and depth. This needs to tour and get out there!
