Friday 28 – Sunday 30 May, 9pm BST each evening, Whatsapp
Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret to announce that The Group has been cancelled at this year’s City of Literature strand of #NNF21. All bookers have been contacted. We hope to work with Jack and Angharad again in the future.
If you have any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
What’s real? Who’s there? What do you believe? Join us for The Group – a three-part play told live via Whatsapp, blending literature and theatre in the palm of your hands.
Tune in each evening for a short, standalone story told through real-time conversations accompanied by a haunting musical score. These initially light-hearted and familiar stories will unfold in a way that will lead you to question digital spaces like Whatsapp and how they can be used as a gateway for support, connection, solidarity, infiltration and influence. Both playful and sinister, The Group is an original and unusual immersive experience for anyone who loves literature, language, drama, music and digital art.
Suitable for ages 16+. Contains adult themes, including escaping a situation of threat.
Part of Open Doors: a series of commissions and open submissions programmed by the National Centre for Writing, with support from Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence programme.
