webnowriting-300x2211The Myth of Escape

In the wake of the anniversary of 9/11, a provocative, timely dark comedy that asks the question we are often too entrenched to ask ourselves… are any of us truly free?

Billy finds himself in a cell next to Alex. Neither are sure what they have done wrong. Perhaps nothing. It doesn’t seem to matter. Someone wanted them imprisoned and so they have been. Everything is permitted but nothing goes unpunished.

The Myth of Escape By Rob Johnston, writer of Rid The World (Unity Theatre). Directed by John Garfield-Roberts, director of Theatre Uncut (Everyman Theatre).

Actors needed to participate in workshops in preparation for Williamson Tunnel’s Steampunk show,  Dismembered Empire!

“In October the gates between Liverpool as we know it and a parallel Liverpool will open up, so we can witness a significant event in this world play out.

This is a Steampunk style parallel world, where Liverpool has become the centre for world trade and economic power. Certain infamous debate raging between two famous scientists, Tesla and Edison, has reached such significance it is ripping the ‘Empire’ in two. The Williamson Tunnels are a source of both work and power for the Empire's citizens. Strange and dangerous secrets lurk in the Tunnel's depths; those close to the truth must make a choice that will affect the lives of many.”
Experience of devised theatre and improvisation desirable, participants should be comfortable with interacting with an audience. 
An opportunity to participate in site specific theatre at a unique historical venue!

Macbeth_David Morrissey as Macbeth and Julia Ford as Lady Macbeth © Helen Warne

The Everyman is dead. Long live the Everyman.

The last time I saw Dave Morrissey on stage at the Liverpool Everyman, we were both members of the Everyman Youth Theatre. He often performed with his friend Ian Davies, later to call himself Ian Hart.

The pair were extraordinary for their great focus and clarity, focus that would be remarkable even in jobbing actors, and all the more so as they were teenagers improvising. Morrissey and Hart always had presence, and you knew, however young they were, that you were in the presence of talent that would out. (This was the same talent and intention we saw in our bare workshop space when a young woman did an absolutely captivating 10 minute improvisation on the unpromising theme of ‘feeding the ducks’. Even at 12, we were spellbound. She was Cathy Tyson, later to star in Mona Lisa.)

 

Morrissey’s Macbeth is a man’s man, very present and very solid, and the actor brings his full range of talents to bear.
