Recording The Underwriters, Live Theatre
It’s now over 5 years since I was part of The Underwriters project at Live Theatre, Newcastle which showcased the talent of local writers, actors and 2 up-and-coming directors, David Robson and Helen Ferguson with Degna Stone as producer. The idea was for writers to create a monologue which would then be performed in the Undercroft at Live Theatre. Some very powerful pieces were produced including my own Tilting at Windmills played by Stan Smith as a retired Colonel.
A number of these monologues were also suitable for audio and so we recorded them in the Green Room at Live Theatre for listenupnorth.com thus giving longevity to the project and finding a new audience online. I am now featuring these timeless pieces again for your enjoyment:
Tilting at Windmills by Rachel Cochrane
A Coat from Robbs by Noreen Rees
What to Tell Baba by Gareth Pert
