@ Rosemary Branch Theatre in Islington
November 28th, 7:30pm
Calling actors and directors:
We are looking for actors interested in participating in the a night of rehearsed reading for 3 exciting new plays!
We are also looking for one director who is interested in directing one of the plays.
Green Stage is an exciting new theatre project that plants sustainability at the heart of the creative process and at the root of new works themselves. Over the past 7 months they have devised original work inspired by environmental debates and interesting green spaces. Their short play Unplugged imagined how London would respond to a week long power cut and was performed at Spitalfields City Farm and Camden Green Fair. An interactive piece called Forest Trails & Urban Tales, inspired by King Henryâ€™s Walk community garden, gave audiences a chance to reconnect with the forest through encounters with creatures both mythical and real. Now they venture inside a theatre building, with excerpts from 3 intriguing new plays tackling themes of activism, energy production and the frenzied detachment of urban living.
About the plays:
Good Fix by Meghan Moe Beitiks
A radical do-gooder art collectiveâ€™s converted warehouse: a world of miso soup, grant applications, drunken hysteria and toxic sludge.
A play about the high we get from â€˜rightâ€™ actions, the difficulty of pursuing lasting solutions, and the danger of defining â€˜goodâ€™ too narrowly.
Cogent Park by Ian Lane
There is C. There is P. Together they make CHP.
P does the pacing. H hitches a ride.
P makes things happen. H makes things the happenings more bearable.
An absurdist physical theatre piece about the relationship between heat and power, and the benefits of cogeneration.
Hollow Glass by Lara Stavrinou
“The plundering of the human spirit by the market place is paralleled by the plundering of the earth by capital”â€”Bookchin, Murray, Post Scarcity Anarchism
Witness the dysfunctional social arrangements of six twenty-somethings as they struggle to accustom themselves to life in the city. Activism, vintage shoes and microwave brownies provide instant gratification, but in the midst of rising crime and distrust, can they find the space and time to relate to one another?
Thursday, Nov. 25th 6:30-9:30pm
Sunday, Nov. 28th 10:00 – performance at 7:30pm.
