Crossing The Lines

Wed 25 Mar 2015 | 7pm - 9pm | £3.50 | 18+

Crossing The Lines is a scratch-style event facilitated by The Arches and Playwrights’ Studio Scotland in which artists of all kinds perform their versions of contemporary plays, before moving to the bar for feedback and discussion.

The Arches and Playwrights’ Studio, Scotland continue their collaboration to encourage artists of all kinds to engage with the work of contemporary playwrights. Pushing the boundaries of the theatrical experience, whilst firmly focusing on text, this occasional performance evening sees artists of any genre taking a piece of contemporary playwriting and illuminating it within a live setting, before moving to audience feedback and discussion.

Previous work includes Gary McNair’s radical take on David Greig’s Midsummer [A Play with Songs] and Vanessa Coffey and Vicky Beesley’s silent movie interpretation of Isabel Wright’s Peep Show.

This month’s event will be facilitated by Gary McNair and features:

Julia Midtgard: Brewers Fayre by David Greig
Paul Brotherson: Bear Pit by Deb Jones
Victoria Chen: Pater Noster by David Leddy
Rasa Niurkaite: Videotape by Olly Emanuel
