Children’s theatre

Children’s theatre

Today I will take a short reprieve from the arctic as I don my hat of children’s playwright. I am off to the Imaginate Children’s Festival (on the night train!) and plan to cram in 8 plays in two days! I can’t wait to see what other international companies are doing with children’s theatre at present. Over the last couple of months I have had great fun poetically responding to Oily Carts new show Pool Piece. Myself and Aoife Mannix will be spending four days with the Oilies and six regional artists provided by TheatreIs to create a bespoke performance for a pre and post verbal audience. a blog of our process experiences and poetry can be found at www.applecart.wordpress.com
