Lead Artist: Ruth Rankin (writer and director) Collaborator: Naomi Stirrat (actor) Designer: Ali Maclaurin Producer: Rhea Lewis Space: Perth Theatre, Rehearsal Room
I am currently developing skills as a storyteller with Birds of Paradise and the Scottish International Storytelling Festival.
‘The Box’ is a short play I have written which has been shortlisted in an International Playwriting competition with The Soldiers Arts Academy.
Set on base in Henlow, ‘The Box’ creates a snapshot of the anguish and struggles of Grace, a military wife who is parenting through uncertainty as her husband Scott who has PTSD has gone AWOL.
A staged reading of The Box will be showcased at The Space, London on 13th March 2021. The event will be live streamed. Tickets can be booked at: https://space.org.uk/event/soldiers-arts-academy-showcase-livestream/
QR Code Interactive Nativity
I love to make work that is exciting, immersive and accessible. If it challenges how theatre could be and attracts a non traditional theatre audience then I’m keen to get involved. I recently created a QR code interactive nativity which allowed the audience to access and interact with theatre for free in their local park in a covid safe manner.
