Date of Activity: April – June 2020
Age Range: 15-25
20 young writers, aged 15-25, from across Scotland’s intersections and geographies created brand new performance work in the early stages of the pandemic. The project became a collection of stories, poems, monologues and verbatim work that documented young people’s reflections of life, uncertainty and crisis during COVID-19 under national lockdown. All pieces were performed and recorded by professional actors under isolation, including Alan Cumming, Elaine C Smith, Johnny McKnight, Hiftu Quasem and Bill Paterson, amongst others. The works then premiered live on YouTube on 26 June 2020. You can watch the full recorded broadcast below…
