Small Truth Theatre has commissioned a series of micro plays recorded as part of its Digital Caravan space (their original mini theatre on wheels being decommissioned because of the need for social distancing). About a month ago they put out a new set of material under the umbrella title of Our Voices consisting of four short pieces inspired by interacting with young people in and around the company’s north Kensington home.
Since the start of the Covid pandemic closures in 2020, many independent, alternative and fringe theatre venues and companies across the UK and beyond responded to the challenges of lockdowns by taking their shows online – and OffWestEnd has responded to this whole new strand of theatre by launching a new award, the OnComm, for the best of this new stream of online theatre.
The latest account of the Dickens perennial favourite A Christmas Carol comes courtesy of the Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield.
The microplays in the Digital Caravan Theatre Series 2 are full of a richness born out of careful time management giving them a leanness which is sometimes lacking in longer works.
Small Truth Theatre’s Digital Caravan Theatre 2 will be launched on 17 October 2020, its second collection of 15-minute audio plays, all available to download for free and BSL interpreted.
Small Truth Theatre have reimagined their unique site as an online digital space and are currently presenting a season of three audio dramas of around 15 minutes each under the general title of Digital Caravan Theatre.
Small Truth Theatre has launched its Digital Caravan Theatre, the company’s first collection of audio plays by an extraordinary ensemble of award-winning and acclaimed playwrights – Emma Dennis-Edwards, Abi Zakarian, Jessica Butcher – all available to download for free.
