Laurie Motherwell: Comes Around

We are delighted to be holding a rehearsed reading of a play in development by Laurie Motherwell - Comes Around: a humorous reflection on sex and the older citizen. Archie, Margaret and Fergus are well in their 70s with time on their hands. We join them on a journey to new discoveries in the third age and look for answers to questions; What's going on at the caravan park? Why is the community nurse coming to visit with 'interesting' items in her bag? Directed by Julie Ellen Performed by Michael Mackenzie, Joanna Tope, Crawford Logan & Nicola Roy

Celebrating Women's Right to Vote

Processions is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to take part in a mass participation artwork to celebrate one hundred years of votes for women and we're delighted to be one of the 100 organisations, creating 100 banners to mark the occasion. In 1918, the Representation of the People Act gave the first British women the right to vote and stand for public office. One hundred years on, we are inviting women* and girls across the UK to come and mark this historic moment as part of a living portrait of women in the 21st century.
