Virus Stew - A Digital Rehearsed Reading

Working with three ladies from our partnership with Weekday Wow Factor, they have devised this verbatim piece about the lockdown and the Coronavirus pandemic.

The piece, Virus Stew (musings from the new normal), has been submitted to the King Lear Prizes to help sustain the delivery of our work with Weekday Wow Factor. Working with all three ladies has been an absolute honour. We hope you enjoy this recording of our second ever reading of the piece via Zoom.
