Taking Part: Theatre Makers

Theatre Makers provides the opportunity for community groups to work with theatre professionals to tell their stories and explore social agendas affecting their communities through the creation of new theatre to be performed by professional actors.

Theatre Makers projects over the next two years include; 

These Demon Ways is a piece of new writing in development by Emma McGordon, a local writer and performance poet, who fuses spoken word and theatre.

The play centres on a young woman who returns to Whitehaven after university. Struggling with rural isolation and obsessive thoughts, she meets an older woman and begins a journey that will end with her realising that the landscape of West Cumbria is crucial to her sense of identity within the world. Told over a ten year time period, the story unfolds through poetry and dialogue from chaos to hope.

We are working with Director Alice Knight (Young Vic/Jerwood Assistant Director’s Programme – 2013/14) on the development and production of this new writing which will be presented in Rosehill’s reopening season.
