Well Done to The Exchange, North Shields!
There was a decent turnout for our latest Scratch Theatre Night at The Exchange with three new plays in progress put on view. We invited Sarah Seymour, director of Timeworks Theatre Company to take on the opening 25 mins of Steve Chambers’ newest work, Fly me to The Moon, a two-hander where Siobhan (Louisa Bayl), an holistic healer and physiotherapist forms an unlikely alliance with her sceptical patient Andy (Chris Iddon). Genevieve Guthrie’s Stains saw the return to Cloud Nine after more than 15 years of Aussie actor Ned Valent. Ned played Mark who turns up unexpectedly on the doorstep of Sandra (Trudi Panvalkar). But what is their dark past? Peter Mortimer’s The Missing Leghad Kyle Morley, Lily Dures Taylor and Dylan Mortimer in this strange tale of a misplaced limb. Lily also provided the evening’s musical interludes. Scratch Nights give a chance for evolving work to be exposed to the public and that same public are than invited to give their written responses which are handed on to the writers. Thanks for all those who did so!
Cloud Nine has now produced the work of 30 different playwrights. Its range of work includes a play walked and performed the length of the Roman Wall (Off the Wall), a short play performed for morning commuters on the Shields Ferry (Ships that Pass), a play centred on the Meadow Well riots of 1991 plus a four year programme of small scale new theatre performed at the Low Lights Tavern, North Shields, and other North Tyneside coastal venues.
