Prepare to be entertained by a brand-new collaboration between two popular groups at the Guild! The Guild Players, and the Guild Creative Writers, are working together to present an evening of theatre and the spoken word, presented in the round. Centred around a short one-act play, it will also include original work by the creative writer’s group, adapted for the stage. The event will be held on the evening of Saturday, 25th February, during the Guild’s 2023 Spring half-term. The idea is a joint effort between Matt Smith of the Players, and Gill Rossini, the Guild’s creative writing tutor. Matt explains: ‘We have very seasoned actors in The Guild Players, producing comedy, drama, fierce emotion and of course, great entertainment. But giving new people a chance to blossom is what our group is all about, and this is a perfect way to display our theatre talents. Alongside the brilliant work of the creative writing group, this is an exciting venture!’ Gill added: ‘The writers at the Guild are so talented, I really wanted to showcase some of their work to show how versatile creative writing can be. I am proud that we have such a rich back catalogue of work produced by the Guild writers that we can draw on, and with the expertise of the Guild Players to work with, we know our work is in safe hands!’ It promises to be a fun, relaxed and entertaining evening. We’ll be posting updates nearer the time!
