New audio plays every Monday and Thursday performed by our Elders Company.
At the start of 2020, Southwark Playhouse commissioned playwrights Abraham Adeyemi, Georgia Green, Sophie Ellerby, Stewart Melton and Justina Kehinde to pen brand new short plays for performance by the Elders Company, its weekly drama group for anyone aged 65 and over. Once lockdown hit, the theatre worked with the writers to adapt their plays for audio, and last summer members of the Elders Company gathered in small, socially distanced numbers at Southwark Playhouse to rehearse and record them. These will be presented over the course of the next three weeks on Mondays and Thursdays, so check back here to hear the rest! All plays directed by Toby Clarke. Sound Design, Engineering and Original Music by Roly Botha. Find out more about the Elders Company here.
