Following a highly successful launch at The Lion & Unicorn last year, Amplified Theatre brings its unique new writing event Six to The Bunker.
Here it will present six short plays written by six emerging writers, inspired by six songs, donated by six musicians. All performances will be fully captioned for deaf and hard of hearing audiences, making Six the first piece of theatre to use these technologies in the venue.
Six was conceived by Stephen Lloyd, founder and artistic director of Amplified Theatre, an inclusive production company that focuses on merging live theatre with alternative music genres.
Plays featured in the event are:
The Journey by Neil Gray inspired by the song ‘DNA’ by Branco. Directed by Stephen Collins.
Empty by Rekha John-Cheriyan inspired by the song ‘Empty’ by SuRie. Directed by Niall Phillips.
Protest! by Harry ter Haar inspired by the song ‘Battle of Whitehall’ by John Kelly. Directed by Paul Anthoney.
Second Person by Felix O’Brien inspired by the song ‘You Said’ by Nadine Wild Palmer. Directed by Hannah Sharkey.
The State of Things by Tori Allen-Martin inspired by the song ‘Poor Man’ by Jimmy & the Wolf. Directed by Stephen Lloyd.
Shadows by Tom Wentworth inspired by the song ‘Shadows’ by Jamie West & The Banished Poets. Directed by Charlie Toko.
Six runs at The Bunker at 7.30pm on Sunday 30th April and Sunday 7th May, presenting all six plays on both dates. Follow Amplified Theatre on Twitter @AmplifiedTheatr for further announcements and links to the songs that have inspired the plays.
