April 10-13 – Stage Reading of “Blooming Violet”

With the homeland under German fire and the mortal coil wound tight, the true story of Violet Macdonald is revealed. It tells of how this young woman from north east Yorkshire rises up from the strife of daily life, to find her way to a place that she never believed possible.

Violet’s story is not so much about an extraordinary life, but of an ordinary, working-class, Yorkshire-woman experiencing extraordinary times from 1916-1952.

A staged reading is a simplified form of theatre that is performed by actors with scripts in hand in front of an audience. It is a means of experiencing a piece of theatre without being a fully-realized production, where the emphasis is on hearing the text instead of seeing it. The actors will stand in fixed positions and perform their characters with gusto. There are no technical elements such as props, costumes, or lighting, however, a few sound/music enhancements plus a narrator to provide the context for each scene rounds out a fulfilling theatrical event.

$20 cash at the door OR reserve your spot with an e-transfer to [email protected].

15 Characters will be performed by 4 actors: Jodie Auckland, Andy Bartle, Steven Jacklin and Jan Jacklin

4 performances only; April 10 & 13 @ 2pm and April 11 & 12 @ 7pm
